5 Tips for Submitting Your ASLA 2022 Conference Proposal

The ASLA 2022 Call for Presentations deadline is fast approaching! With the deadline two weeks away, we encourage you to put aside an hour this week to log into our system, familiarize yourself with the guidelines and process, and get your submission started!

Here are our top tips for submitting a winning proposal.

  1. Assemble a diverse team. ASLA aims to increase the representation of BIPOC speakers. To promote a new and diverse group of speakers, sessions that include speakers who did not speak at last year’s conference will be viewed favorably. Panels that include voices from outside the profession are also strongly encouraged.
  2. Get creative! Be creative with your proposal and how your passion and projects fit within our eight education tracks.
  3. Direct application. Consider, "what can I share with attendees that might have direct application to their practice or business after attending my session?"
  4. To err is human–to edit, divine. Take advantage of the submission guides and templates to collaborate with your co-speakers and to draft and edit your proposal before you submit online. Always proof your submission for any errors.
  5. Don't procrastinate. Submit your proposal early, so there’s time left in case anything goes awry. Proposals cannot be submitted until all speakers accept the speaker terms and agreement.

Help us shape the 2022 education program by submitting a proposal through our online system by Tuesday, February 22, 2022 at NOON PT.

Education session speakers selected from this process will receive a full complimentary registration to the ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture.

All education session proposals are reviewed by the Annual Conference Education Advisory Committee. Please visit the submission site to learn more about the 2022 education tracks, submission criteria, review process, and key dates.
