There are several ways to get support for developing your session proposal.

Suggested Topics

We have worked updated a list of suggested topics for each topic category based on attendee feedback, Session Advisory Committee input, and ongoing community feedback. View the list of 20NTC suggested topics.

Community Call

On July 9, NTEN will host a community call in which we will explain in detail the session proposal process. Anyone interested in learning more is welcome to join, there is no commitment. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions about the process or about your particular proposal idea.

Learn more and register ahead of the event.

Community Support

Community members are encouraged to join our online proposal prep group to request and provide feedback on their proposal drafts during the session submission period.

To request feedback

  1. Submit your session draft through the NTC site.
  2. Join the proposal prep group.
  3. Create a new discussion post in the session feedback group (if requesting feedback on multiple sessions, be sure to create a separate thread for each one).
  4. Use your session title as the subject line.
  5. Paste the link to your session from the NTC site, add any notes and post.
  6. Give suggestions on other sessions while you wait for feedback on yours (optional).

To give feedback

  1. Join the proposal prep group.
  2. Look through the subject lines for a session title that matches your interests.
  3. Join a discussion and reply publicly with your feedback.
  4. Keep your comments constructive and actionable.
  5. We’d like everyone who requested feedback to receive at least one response, so try to prioritize posts with no replies.
