Submission Deadline

The 2025 call for sessions will open in August 2024; proposals will be accepted until 8:00 p.m. ET on Monday, December 9, 2024. 

Please Note: Late proposals cannot be considered for review; no deadline extensions or exceptions will be granted.

Submission Guidelines

All proposals are peer-reviewed. A committee of LeadingAge and Global Ageing Network members and staff considers the following criteria when evaluating the merits of each proposal:

  • Relevance of topic and applicability of concepts to aging services providers.
  • Experienced speakers, knowledgeable about the subject matter and provider audience.
  • Diversity of voices, perspectives, backgrounds, and life experiences represented, including demographic diversity.

Please Note: Given the high number of quality proposals we receive each year, only about 25% of submissions can be included in the final program.
