Hands-on Webinar: Strengthening GCC Conference Proposals
1:00-3:00 PM EST
The goal of this virtual event is to support all GCC members who are considering presenting at the GCC Conference, especially (new) GCC members submitting a conference proposal for the first time.
In this hands-on, interactive webinar, participants will give and receive feedback on their proposal drafts. This immersive session will consist of small group feedback sessions in breakout rooms (2-4 participants), in addition to a short opening instructional session and debrief.
To get the most out of this session and strengthen your proposal, please check out the Pre-Workshop To-Do List below. Since this webinar is “hands-on,” you should also plan to be in a setting where you can use audio and screen share via Zoom on the day/time of the webinar.

In preparation for the peer review workshop, please:

- Watch the recording of the 2023 GCC Panel on Conference Proposal Drafting Tips
