Submit Your Proposal for a Lightning Talk
Journalist and Community Members are invited to make brief presentations at National Seminar
Got a brilliant idea to share and looking for a national platform? EWA is inviting proposals from journalist and supporting community members to offer brief presentations at the 2019 National Seminar in Baltimore. We’ll hold an online vote just before the conference to decide who will speak.
We’ve held these “Lightning Talks” before at the National Seminar, and they received some of the best reviews of the conference.
