The California School Nurses Organization (CSNO) Call for Presentations for the 71st Annual CSNO VIRTUAL Conference will CLOSE at midnight on Monday, September 14, 2020.

 

We're LOOKING for effective speakers and timely and engaging topics. Consider submitting a proposal prior to the deadline! 

The VIRTUAL conference is tentatively scheduled to be held February Feb 4-7, 2021 and we invite YOU to submit a proposal. There are opportunities for both full and half day pre-conference sessions on Thursday the 4th, breakout sessions on Friday and Saturday, the 5th and 6th, and keynote / plenary session presentations for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the 7th. You may submit topics for one or more of these categories. (Please note: It is anticipated that keynote / plenary session speakers may be asked to provide a breakout session on Fri or Sat that provides more in-depth information on their topic.)

CSNO is interested in providing a wide array of topics from those with expertise in their fields. As our membership works in a variety of settings in the schools and in communities, we strive to provide information and resources that serve everyone’s unique needs. We look forward to offering many diverse and interesting workshops that will help to improve the practice of California’s school nurses.  

Approximately 600 California School Nurses Organization (CSNO) members and nonmembers attend the annual conference as well as school nurses from neighboring states including Oregon, Washington, Arizona and Nevada. Your participation in this conference will contribute to providing school nurses with the necessary information and resources that will assist them in delivering optimal health services to our California students and their families. 

IMPORTANT: If you are a vendor submitting a proposal, we ask that your sessions be substantive in content that is useful for school nurses regardless of your specific product / service and that it not be a sales pitch. And, we encourage you to partner with a school nurse in your session so that representative may share the school nurse perspective from a best practices standpoint. A partnership presentation will only enhance the perception of your company with all school nurses. 

We encourage you to submit a proposal by or before midnight on Monday, September 14th! IMPORTANT NOTE: Submissions made September 15th and beyond will be considered on a “space available” basis only.

We’ll be providing additional details on the conference including a virtual schedule, fees and more in October. Check the website periodically for updates as well.
