Handouts are a valuable reference for most presentations, and the GWA office will make copies, if submitted by an agreed date. All presentations will be audio recorded and will be made available to GWA members. All online applications must be received no later than Dec. 1, 2015

  • By submitting this proposal, I am agreeing to the guidelines listed above and also to make my presentation at any time during the conference should schedule adjustment need to be made.
