Now Accepting Calls for Proposals
As preparations begin for the 2022 Bringing It Home Conference on Ending Homelessness in North Carolina on May 10-11, 2022, the NC Department of Health and Human Services ESG Office, the NC Coalition to End Homelessness, and the NC Housing Coalition are calling for presentation proposals.
Presentations will be 1 hour and 15 minutes long and include 10-15 minutes of Q&A or discussion. Presentations could be chosen as stand-alone sessions or chosen as a part of a panel. At this time, we are planning a hybrid conference that may include both in-person and remote sessions. Sessions that are planned for in-person presentation may have to pivot to virtual presentation pending the status of social distancing orders and guidelines. Please indicate your preference for presentation style in your submission. Please note that presentations need to include one or more of the topics of interest listed.
Statement of Timeliness and Inclusion
The landscape of homeless services has changed in the wake of COVID-19. While not every proposal needs to make COVID-19 the focus of the presentation, we ask that all proposals take the impact of COVID-19 on their topic into consideration. Presenters for all sessions should be prepared to answer audience questions about COVID-19 impacts.
The Bringing it Home Conference Committee believes that inclusion is a critical part of developing and providing best practice homeless services. For this reason, we are intentional that the conference reflects the diversity of homeless service networks in regard to race, ethnicity, gender and gender identity, sexuality, age, education, ability, and lived experience with homelessness.
In order for your presentation to be considered, please download the submission form and submit your proposal by December 17, 2021. Please submit one proposal for each presentation you are proposing by following this link.
Partners anticipate making decisions about presentations in January.
If you have questions about this call for proposals, please contact Alissa Pritchett at the NC ESG Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-855-4991.
