CSWE Connect

Now Closed: The site to submit CSWE Connect session proposals for the 2014 APM!

CSWE Connect sessions focus on the work of each of CSWE’s 17 Commissions and Councils. These 90-minute sessions present issues of interest and showcase projects of these CSWE leadership groups.

Proposal Content

1 of 2: Subject Matter

The subject matter content for your proposal will be composed of a title and overview.

  • Title: 12 words
  • Overview: 50 words
  • Proposal Text: 750 words or less

2 of 2: Presenter Information

Presenter Identification

You will be asked to provide the following for each presenter and identify one to serve as the primary presenter. In addition, you will be prompted to request a CSWE membership waiver for each presenter as part of the presenter compliance requirements for accepted presenters. You will be able to copy and paste this information from another document.

  • Full name
  • Title
  • Work institution name (do NOT include the office or department name; include those in the address field)
  • Mailing address
  • Telephone number
  • Fax number
  • E-mail address
  • Brief biography

Ensure that you have the correct spelling of each name. Think Tank proposals also require the submission to include the name of the session chair.

For the purpose of meeting the 2014 Accepted Presenter Compliance Requirements policy, make certain each individual listed on your proposal is prepared to register for the 2014 APM and has agreed to be responsible for obtaining individual membership in CSWE (or will qualify for a membership waiver). Do not list persons on a proposal who will not be in attendance as a presenter or have not been informed of the requirements of presentation.

Presenter Role Limit

  1. Primary presenters may submit only one proposal through the call for proposals (the combined peer-reviewed and invited calls).
  2. No presenters may be listed on more than three (one as primary and two as non-primary, or three as non-primary) presentations within the complete APM program.
  3. In support of keeping the APM as broadly representative of social work educational scholarship and accessible to as many participants as possible, the Council on Conferences and Faculty Development (CCFD) endorses the policy of limiting the number of times a participant can be a presenter in a single meeting to three in any given conference, including only one as a primary presenter. This policy has the additional advantage of facilitating transparency in the planning process, as well as making the fixed number of presentation slots available to as many scholars and presenters as possible. Although submitters are to be applauded for their productivity, the CCFD cannot make exceptions to the cap on the number of submissions featured per presenter per conference.
  4. No presenter additions or substitutions may be made after the February 17, 2014, proposal submission deadline.
