2024 Housing Central Conference Call for Proposals

Introduction and Session Considerations

Thank you for your interest in delivering education content to the non-profit housing sector in 2024. This call for proposals is exclusively for the 2024 Housing Central Conference. 
The 2024 Housing Central Conference will take place from November 21st to 23nd, 2024 at the Sheraton Wall Centre in Downtown Vancouver. 

Session Considerations

In order to make your presentation stand out, try to make it as fun and unique as possible. The most successful sessions tend to feature one or more of the following:

  • Engaging, creative, and interactive presentation concepts that foster audience participation
  • Simple opportunities for delegates to network with one another and share their experiences, challenges, and solutions
  • Unique learning challenges that make delegates think critically and reflect on the work they do
  • Education sessions which have an engaging and unique facilitation style
  • Sessions which focus on developing practical skills within the non-profit sector

We also stress the importance of including people with lived experience in sessions where applicable; for example, someone with a disability is best positioned to speak about how accessibility impacts them. We recognize some session topics lend themselves to featuring people with lived experience more than others. 

We are strictly enforcing a four-presenter limit on sessions due to delegate feedback and logistics. In special circumstances, i.e. the inclusion of people with lived experience on a panel, please reach out to us directly.

Session descriptions and bios are limited to 100 words due to space limitations in our promotional materials. Descriptions are subject to editing by the BCNPHA. We strongly encourage presenters not to stray too far from the description in the delivery of content, so that session participants have reasonable expectations of what they might learn in the session. 

You are welcome to submit more than one proposal - feel free to complete the survey multiple times in order to submit multiple proposals. 

The deadline for submitting a proposal to present at the Housing Central Conference in 2024 has been extended to 11:59PM (PST), on April 12th, 2024.
