Speak at Convention

Propose a Session

Our 2023 National Convention in Philadelphia will be here before we know it and we invite you to be a part of it.

Do you want us to cover a specific topic?

NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ+ Journalists plans to provide more than 30 workshop opportunities to its attendees throughout the 2023 Convention from September 7-10 in Philadelphia. Workshop proposals are an integral step in the process the conference planning committee and national office staff take to provide the most up-to-date and relevant workshops to all of our convention attendees.

Convention breakout sessions are 60 minutes long.

Please be prepared to provide the contact information for a presentation coordinator, an abstract (250 words or less), educational goals for the presentation and any confirmed speakers.

If your presentation proposal is accepted, NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ+ Journalists will contact you in early Spring to confirm speakers, their bios, head shots and other requirements for the session. NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ+ Journalists reserves the right to combine panels, assign speakers or affix sponsorships and will inform you as such as soon as possible.
