2015 Call for Session Proposals

Submission: November 4 - March 13 | Conference: June 24-26 | Denver, CO

Calling all business school professionals planning to attend the 2015 GMAC Annual Conference

GMAC is thrilled to launch the Call for Concurrent Session Proposals for the 2015 Annual Conference (June 24-26, Denver, CO).

The GMAC Annual Conference is designed for graduate school professionals from all functions and levels of academic and administrative operations. The event is a unique opportunity for attendees to tap into a communal pool of best practices, success stories, and lessons learned. Professionals attend the 75 minute concurrent sessions expecting clear ideas, lessons, and success stories that they can implement at their schools. The objective of each concurrent session is to present innovative approaches to new or existing challenges so that session attendees can get inspiration and ideas for ways to approach similar situations at their home institutions. 

We encourage you to submit your concurrent session proposals.  Position you and your school as leaders in the graduate management education (GME) community by sharing your innovations, ideas and best practices. We will accept proposals beginning November 4, 2014 through March 13, 2015.

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us at programs@gmac.com.
