2018 Call for Proposals

Our submissions window closed on August 17, 2018. For questions, please contact us at ahecta@gmail.com.

We are proud to announce our 2018 Annual Conference theme: Navigating the Future of Video!
Submit your session proposal online.

We welcome all proposals, but we are especially interested to hear from women and people of color with experience in delivering and supporting communications technology.

After completing the form, use the ‘Submit’ button to email it to us.  If easier than retyping your abstract, there is an option (below the box that requests your abstract to be typed in) to upload a word document. If you do not receive a confirmation from Ms Kathi Schlieff that we have received your proposal, please contact her at kschlieff@associationsolutionsinc.com

Submission of a proposal does not guarantee acceptance/inclusion of the presentation in current conference planning or in the final conference agenda.

Topics for 2018 to include:

* Technology Updates: Join us for our review of new and upgraded technology used in video communications delivery, maker spaces, outreach, and security.

* Emergency Alert Systems (EAS): Dive into the latest emergency alert technology and procedures, and what you need to keep your campus community safe and informed.

* Student Community Update: We’re bringing back the always-popular Student Monitor(TM), to help you anticipate and meet the video demands of current and future students.

* Requirements and Laws: Learn up-to-date legal requirements for accessibility, security, distribution and retransmission, and digital rights management.

* Network Updates: Hear case studies and learn best practices for building, maintaining, and troubleshooting your existing network infrastructure, and how to update your technology to support the campus of tomorrow.

* Streaming: Learn what works (and what doesn’t) for your live and on-demand streaming services.


All representatives – both institutional and corporate – are welcome to present at any knowledge session.


We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 AHECTA Annual Conference, October 8-10, at The Blackwell Inn, on The Ohio State University campus in Columbus, Ohio! Register here.
