Phase 1 Proposal Review Recruitment Cycle
To ensure selection of high quality educational sessions for the APM, the peer-reviewed proposals undergo a two-phase evaluation process. In the first phase a pool of reviewers composed of individual CSWE members provides an initial assessment. Phase 2 reviews are conducted by the 40 track chairs. Their recommendations are forwarded to the Council on Conferences and Faculty Development (CCFD) for final decisions.
