As youth and family service programs continue to grow, there is a rising need for educational workshops aimed at helping agencies and programs increase effectiveness while minimizing costs. To deliver the highest quality sessions possible, Daniel’s conference planning committee continually seeks the perspectives, creativity, experience, and knowledge of experts in our industry.
We invite qualified adults and youth to submit proposals for conference workshop sessions that share innovative systems, policies, and collaborative techniques to raise the quality of services we deliver to the children and families we serve.
Presenters at Daniel’s conferences are required to register for the conference. A primary presenter must be designated in cases where there is more than one presenter. Only the primary presenter will receive a complimentary registration. The primary presenter is responsible for disseminating conference/presentation information to the co-presenter(s).
Secondary presenters will receive a $50.00 discount off of their conference registration fee, (which may be extended to up to three co-presenters). All presenters are responsible for their own hotel and travel expenses.

While we encourage presenters to share their new publications, curricula, and other tools, we ask that you refrain from using workshops to “sell” products. Exhibit space is available for those who would like to promote their goods and services.
Workshop proposals will be selected based on their relevance to the field and target audience, ability to address policy/program areas, engaging format, interactive design and originality. Once your proposal submission is received, the Primary Presenter will receive an email confirmation of receipt. Final selection decisions will be made by the Daniel National Conference Planning Committee. Notification of proposal selection will be sent to the Primary Contact Person via email.
