Your Expertise Is Needed Now More Than Ever

Your Peers Have Questions.
You Have Answers.

We know these are uncertain times — and nobody knows what the rest of 2020 will look like. That includes us. As we look ahead to this fall’s QM Connect Conference, it is likely that changes will be made. It’s too early to tell, though, what those changes will look like. Many factors will be considered and options evaluated.

But one thing is clear. Your experience is needed now more than ever. Your colleagues at institutions across the globe need to tap into your resources, ideas and best practices to prepare for whatever the future holds.

The best way to help those colleagues is to share your ideas — to submit a presentation proposal. In fact, many of the concentrations lend themselves to what is happening right now and what we, as a community, need to do to bring quality into focus and ensure students succeed as we move forward.

Rest assured your effort will not be in vain. We hope to use every accepted proposal, even if the conference format or delivery mode changes — even if you are unable to travel. “While there are unknowns at this time, we do know that QM will provide an opportunity — or opportunities — for the community to come together to learn, share and connect,” shared Deb Adair, QM’s Executive Director. “And it will be your ideas, stories, research, and experiences that make that possible! Thank you!”

The deadline to submit a proposal is approaching quickly. Get started today:

  1. Develop a proposal in one of eight conference concentrations
  2. Choose a presentation format
  3. Submit your proposal by May 4, 2020!
