Developing a Strong Abstract for the 2020 NORDP Conference

Are you interested in presenting at the 2020 NORDP Conference in San Antonio, Texas? Whether for one- or two-hour sessions, Lightning Talks, the Idea Showcase, or Roundtables, your successful conference abstract submission is your opportunity to present at the conference and share your message with NORDP colleagues.

The NORDP 2020 Conference Programming Committee is presenting a webinar on writing successful abstracts for this year’s conference. You can register here for the webinar that will take place Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 1:00 p.m. central time.

Learn how to craft a competitive abstract appropriate to the numerous presentation formats available. This webinar is designed to engage all NORDP members, including those new to the field and to the organization, and will help ensure you can prepare a successful abstract.

We will do a deep dive into the current Call for Abstracts, which was released in August, as well as share tips for developing a strong abstract and conference presentation.

Time to get excited about sharing your experience and expertise with the NORDP community! Abstracts are due October 21.
