Call For Presentations

2021 Annual Forum

September 26-29, 2021


The GWPC is now accepting presentation proposals for the 2021 Annual Forum.

You are invited to submit a proposal to present during a session of the GWPC 2021 Annual Forum. 

The conference will be held September 26-29, 2021, at the Sheraton Salt Lake City. We are so excited to meet again in person; however, we understand that travel is not possible for everyone. Please do not let that deter you from submitting an abstract as we will have plans to make this a hybrid event to accommodate presenter and attendee needs.

We are looking for cutting edge, best practices and presentations specifically addressing topics listed below. However, all presentation topics are welcome. If you have recommendations for presenters, please submit that information as well.

We invite professionals from state or federal government, academia, NGOs, and industry, to submit proposals. Proposals should be a brief description or outline of the presentation.
