This is a reminder that proposals for the 2015 Northwest Conference are due online no later than April 15, 2014. Click here to propose a session.

Remember, you have THREE types of proposals you can make.

1. Propose a session that you would like to present.
2. Propose a topic that you would like to see (NAfME-NW will try to find a presenter).
3. Propose an individual that you would like to see (and, if you wish, a topic to be presented).

Itís easy, and to build a conference that YOU want the NW leadership team needs your input (on time!).

Have a great week.
