Get a preview of the conference—sign up to review proposals!

Can you believe it? We’re back for Round Three of planning our conference in Omaha, Nebraska from November 3-6, 2022. Are you willing to provide a needed service to make the professional program the best it can be? Would you like to be a part of the fun? Interested in learning how these wheels run?

We are looking for savvy reviewers who are willing to volunteer their time and talents to read and rate our incoming conference proposals. The Program Committee is looking for members who have the expertise and a good sense for selecting the best, well-grounded, and stimulating proposals!

What will the proposals be about?

Conference theme:

"MIND, CULTURE, AND SOCIETY: Integrating Intercultural and Inclusion"

The four tracks for this conference include:

  • Track 1: Mind & Body
  • Track 2: Culture
  • Track 3: Society
  • Track 4: General

How much time do I need to allocate?

Roughly 6-10 hours between April 15th and June 15th.

We are asking all reviewers to review at least 5 proposals. We’re estimating that each proposal will take an hour of your time. Plus, we will be providing a 30-minute virtual, training session to walk you through the process and answer any questions.

Do I need to be an expert in the track topics?

No! An interest in the field, the conference theme, and a passion for reading and scoring is a plus!

How do I sign up?

Please state your interest using this form: https://forms.gle/V64f5hBFd5fmd5DE7

We’d love to hear from you as soon as possible so that we can schedule reviewer training before April 15th.

Thank you!
