WANT TO TALK OR PRESENT SOMETHING AT THE CAE COMMUNITY MEETING?

This year we are offering an opportunity for attendees to submit proposals for a FastPitch, Special Interest Group Discussion, or a Presentation. You can choose more than one. The committee will select based on available spots. Deadline is October 10th.

FASTPITCH: The theme is "Innovation". Schools are given the opportunity to make a 10 minute or less presentation to the general audience on an innovative program, approach or other item. We will have a limited number of spots for FASTPITCH.

SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS: These are opportunities for participants to discuss items relevant to the interest group. The sessions will be about 1 hour in breakout rooms. Sample topics might be Women and Minorities in Cyber Security or Cyber Security Accreditations. The groups will provide documentation of the session.

PRESENTATIONS: These breakout room forums are provided for attendees who wish to present something of interest to an audience. Presentations should be less than 30 minutes.
