Navigating Change: Transforming Challenges into Opportunities
In Military and Veteran Education

Call for Proposals

Council of College and Military Educators is seeking submissions for the 2018 Conference to be held in San Diego, California, March 26-29. Anyone wishing to present or provide an informational session is invited to submit a proposal.

CCME values sessions that present current and best practices, new ways to ensure successful transition, innovative ways of using technology, college initiatives and also any sessions pertaining to updated military education services. Please note the attached template that must be used for submitting all proposals. To submit a proposal, please complete the template and email all documents to Bethany Taylor at for consideration.

Proposal Deadline was Friday, September 22, 2017.

Proposal Requirements:

  • Title of Presentation: Accurately reflect the learning focus of your session (15-word max). Create a title that makes the reader want to learn more about your session.
  • List of Presenter(s)
  • Presenter Bios: For each presenter, describe the relevance of her/his expertise to the presentation topic plus presenting experience (150-word maximum).
  • Abstract of Presentation: Concisely describe your presentation and what attendees will learn (75-word maximum). Note: This is what CCME will publish.
  • Description of the Presentation: 2-3 pages
  • Specific Learning Outcomes of the Presentation: Please include two (2) to four (4) learning outcomes. The focus here is on what the learner will gain, not what you want to tell them.


Presentations are all 60 min sessions. PLEASE NOTE: all presenters are expected to pay the CCME conference registration fee if attending the entire conference. A one day registration will be available and all presenters will be guaranteed the early bird rate.

Once the closing date has passed, we will be unable to accept any new proposals. Time is required for all proposals to be evaluated by the Concurrent Session Committee.
