Share Your Gift Planning Expertise

Posted by National Association of Charitable Gift Planners on Jan 24, 2018 7:30:00 AM

Call for Presentations - Now Open!

We invite you to propose a breakout session for the 2018 CGP Conference in Las Vegas. CGP National Conference is the largest gathering of charitable planners in the country, where more than 800 attendees come to learn from and with their peers.

We’re looking for sessions that are…

Unique: Is this a session that could only be found at CGP?

Engaging: Adults learn better when they are thinking out loud, not passively listening. We prefer proposals that include strong plans for active learning.

Practical: Our attendees want to leave the conference with new tools and ideas that are immediately useful in practice.

Challenging: Most of our attendees have 10 or more years of experience in charitable planning, and they’re interested in sessions that go beyond the basics.

If you have great experience to share, we want you on our faculty!

The Call for Presentations is open through March 1. Click here for a worksheet to help you prepare your submission. When you're ready to submit a proposal, click the link below.
