Call For Presentations

Help NGA Continue its Reputation for Superior Training

We are seeking quality presenters for the conference to speak about a wide array of guardianship issues. We will consider proposals for any topic that would benefit conference attendees.

Tips for Subject Matter and Content
  • While basics are important, many of the attendees are experienced professionals who request sessions that provide intermediate and advanced levels of information and education.
  • Sessions should provide working guardians, conservators, and fiduciaries with knowledge they can take home and put to use in their practices.
  • Presentations are expected to reflect the NGA Standards of Practice and Ethical Principles.
  • Interactive sessions are encouraged, as they receive great reviews from participants.
  • Most sessions are scheduled to last for 1.00 – 1.25 hours.
  • If your session could be expanded to be offered as a half-day conference intensive, please note that in the description.

About the Conference

The preliminary educational schedule features:

  • Conference intensives on Saturday, October 23
  • Conference sessions on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, October 24 – 26

The NGA conference is an exceptional platform for you to share your expertise, to discuss developments, and to introduce innovations in practice. All proposals generated by this call for presentations will receive serious consideration.

Please consider that the audience for this conference comes from across the country. If your session focuses on state-specific material, please present it in a way that can be adapted to other states.

Note: A $100 discount on the conference registration fee will be provided for each conference session (not per speaker).

NGA is currently planning to hold an in-person conference. As circumstances dictate, NGA may explore the option to record and distribute sessions presented live, or to present all sessions virtually. But, as of now, all speakers must be willing to appear in person in October.
