2021 Call for Speakers OPEN
Speak at the Maryland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics 2021 Annual Meeting
The Maryland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (MAND) is seeking presentation proposals for our 2021 Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting is the premier educational and networking event for nutrition professionals in Maryland. Over 250 nutrition professionals will be in attendance. The 2021 meeting will take place on Monday, April 12, 2021 at Martin’s West in Baltimore, Maryland. As the date nears, we will make arrangements to hold the event virtually if COVID-19 restrictions do not allow for an in person conference. You must be willing and able to present virtually if needed.
The MAND Annual Meeting attracts nutrition professionals from diverse fields and, therefore, we are open to many topics pertaining to food, nutrition, and/or health. Presentation proposals should reflect cutting edge research and practical applications. Only advanced sessions (Academy level II or III) in acceptable topic areas will be accepted.
If you are interested in speaking at the meeting, please complete the online speaker proposal form: https://forms.gle/nL5GJszDhw83KnJC8 The deadline for proposals is Friday, November 13, 2020 at midnight EST. Any proposals received after this date will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis as determined by the Annual Planning Committee. Incomplete proposals will not be reviewed. Selected speakers will be notified of their acceptance by mid-December.
Up to two proposals per individual or group will be reviewed. Please do not submit more than two proposals. Proposals from individuals who have not presented at a previous MAND meeting are particularly encouraged. All conflicts of interest must be fully disclosed at the time of proposal submission. Honorariums, travel and other fees are negotiated on a per speaker basis. Estimates for both are part of the submission process. Presenters should be willing to present virtually or in person.
If you have any questions about or problems completing this form, please contact Liz Entin at firstname.lastname@example.org
