WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR IN PROPOSALS
In soliciting proposals, the conference planning committee has these main objectives:
HOW PROPOSALS WILL BE REVIEWED AND SELECTED
Proposals will be reviewed by members of the conference planning committee and CCPH staff. Proposals were expected to meet these minimum criteria:
"As the main contact for this proposal, I
understand that if this proposal is accepted, all presenters are
expected to register and pay the registration fee for the conference
and that it is my responsibility to inform my co-presenters of this
requirement. If presenter registration fees are not received by the due
date indicated in the acceptance letter, the session will not be
included in the conference program. I understand that this proposal may
be edited to fit the conference program. I understand that CCPH will
provide PowerPoint set-up and DVD player as appropriate. If additional
audiovisual aids are needed, the expense involved will be paid by the
presenters prior to the conference unless otherwise indicated in
writing from CCPH.”
Budget now to attend the conference. The early-bird registration fee for premium individual or organizational members of CCPH will not exceed $450.
Organizational members can register all
individuals named on the membership at the member rate. If you're not
yet a member of CCPH, we encourage you to join today! CCPH members
receive substantial discounts on fees not only for the conference but
also for training institutes, technical assistance, publications and
more! Learn more about member benefits and print an application at http://depts.washington.edu/ccph/members.html.

For fundraising ideas, we recommend the
article “8 Ways to Raise $2500 (or more) in 10 days (or less,
sometimes)” from the Grassroots Fundraising Journal at http://depts.washington.edu/ccph/pdf_files/WaysRaise2500in10Days.pdf.
Local foundations are possible sources of support, as this article
about how a CCPH member raised funds demonstrates: http://depts.washington.edu/ccph/PM_020907.htm.
If you need a letter of support to bolster your fundraising efforts,
email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we would be happy to provide one!
Scholarship opportunities.

Details on the status of available scholarship funding and application instructions will be sent when the submitting presenters are informed about a decision on their proposals. Check the conference homepage at http://depts.washington.edu/ccph/conf12-overview.html for the latest information.
In addition to having their abstracts
appear in the conference program, conference presenters will have
opportunities to submit their work for peer reviewed publication and
dissemination. Three such opportunities are described below. Details
will be sent when authors are notified about the outcome of their
is an online portal for peer-reviewing, publishing and disseminating
diverse products of community-engaged scholarship that are in forms
other than journal articles – for example, videos, training manuals,
policy briefs, photo voice exhibits and curricula. We encourage authors
of proposals submitted for the CCPH conference to consider submitting
products to CES4Health.info at the same time. Products can be submitted
at any time, but those received by January 2, 2012 will have the
greatest chance of completing the peer review process and being
published by the time of the conference. For more information, visit http://ces4health.info
