    Incomplete and/or late proposals will not be considered.

  • After July 17, 2017, the Convention Program Committee will only approve a speaker change if the original speaker is unable to attend the annual meeting.
  • Due to an increase in proposal submissions and size of the convention facilities, all proposals will not be accepted. In this situation, topics will be selected based on the organization of the program, equipment needs (where applicable), quality of content and speakers, and significance of the material to the NATA membership.
