Session Format:
Learnapalooza will include 5 different hour long sessions happening over one day. The event is entirely single tracked, so there will not be any concurrent sessions. Each session will be presented by 1-3 speakers giving a PPT presentation (other formats may be okay with advance approval) at a podium, panel table, or by standing in front of the audience. Please note there is a strong likelihood that all of the event sessions will be recorded and distributed later on. A couple of panel sessions are okay, although regular training oriented sessions are preferred.

1. Please review the type of attendees that will be present at the event.
2. Indicate the type of session you wish to present (panel, PPT presentation, Group Activity, etc)

Selection Criteria:
We are looking for a wide range of learning and education professionals. A draft agenda can be found on the agenda page. These areas are subject to change. Sessions must be appropriate and interesting for learning and education staff and they must be as nonprofit specific as possible. Speakers should have experience presenting at other events. For any sessions presented by vendors/consultants, we strongly encourage a nonprofit executive co-speaker to be included as a case study. Sessions that provide concrete take-aways, real case studies, best practices, how-to info, and other actionable items are preferred.
