Request for Session Proposals
Sustainable Oregon 2019, AOR’s 41st annual conference, will be held June 19th - 21st, 2019 at The Riverhouse in Bend, Oregon.
This year we are seeking enthusiastic and dynamic presenters that can share ideas and innovations in the recycling, reuse, waste reduction, and resource and materials management industry or workshops on issues impacting our industry.
We are especially interested in presentations from outside Oregon to bring new, fresh perspectives to our attendees.
Sessions are comprised of multiple 15-20 minute presentations totaling 60 minutes with an additional 15 minutes of Q&A/Discussion time. The AOR conference committee will combine proposals that address similar areas and topics to form a full 75-minute session.
Workshops are intended to be hands-on and interactive, with attendees leaving the workshop with tangible skills they can take back to implement in their workplace. Past/suggested workshop ideas include: using social media to promote programs; how to develop end-of-year giving campaigns; how to identify and track metrics to gauge program success. This is by no means an exhaustive list, the ideas are endless, so long as they leave attendees with a new found skill/s to enhance their work productivity.
Workshops are generally held the morning of the first day of the conference and are 2-3 hours in length.
Proposals are due October 5, 2018 and will be decided on by our Conference Planning Committee.Selected proposals will be selected and speakers notified no later than December 15, 2018.
