Call for proposals

Our all for proposals for our 6th annual conference due to take place in November 2022 is open. More details below. 

Help us to showcase the excellence in advancing practice by submitting a proposal to present at the upcoming conference. 

In the spirit of lifting restrictions, listening, and opening our minds to new ways of being, the selection of proposals for 2022 will not be in alignment with learning pillars. Rather, we invite you to propose around the subject, knowledge, questions, topics, strategies, and discussions you are most compelled to explore interactively with others.

By presenting you will:

  • Increase your visibility throughout the advancing practice community 
  • Network with ground-breaking thought leaders and have a unique opportunity to engage with world-renowned experts in enhanced, advanced, consultant practice, and supervision
  • Share your wisdom gained from years of hard-earned experience 
  • Demonstrate your expertise with peers and colleagues from across the country 
  • Advance your profession and help drive continued innovation and growth. 

Speaking at the conference is a great platform to share your leadership, knowledge, lessons learned, and expertise. You’ll also have unique opportunities to meet and connect with other conference speakers and network with a national community of exceptional advanced practice leaders. 

Please note: The Centre for Advancing Practice will record all sessions for on demand access after the conference.
