Convention Workshop Request for Proposals
Do you have skills and knowledge that would benefit executives, direct care professionals, financial managers, human resource directors, program managers, or others in the human service provider sector?
The Providers’ Council is interested in receiving a workshop presentation proposal from you or your staff for our 38th Annual Convention and Expo. This event is the largest of its kind in New England, with over 1,000 individuals from nonprofit human services providers, businesses, and state agencies expected to attend. The convention will be held on Wednesday, November 6, 2013 at the Boston Marriott Hotel at Copley Place.
Convention workshops are 90 minutes long and are attended by 20 to 100 convention participants. The convention provides wide exposure to the human service community, and the workshops are advertised in our registration brochure, on our website, and in the Convention program booklet. Convention presenters receive complimentary admittance to the entire Convention & Expo, including all meals. We reimburse presenters’ fees for copying workshop materials up to $30.
