Call for Submittals

The 2019 theme for Georgia A4LE Summer Conference is “Changing Tides: Evolving Beyond”. The theme stems from our new location at Jekyll Island.  But it also reflects the unique challenges so often found in planning facilities where teaching methodologies seem to be constantly changing.  In addition, today’s society is demanding a closer look into security and safety as a design feature.  Therefore, a natural connection can be seen in an ever changing shoreline.  ALSO, this year’s conference will be jointly held with the Southeastern Region Conference.  It’s now time to open our Call for Presentations.

Our goal is to provide presentations that challenge the industry to provide facilities that will provide Georgia Schools with high performance facilities that will withstand the ever evolving education environment.

All presentations should focus on educating school facility representatives and other attendees on new technologies, updated processes and procedures, innovative strategies, etc. that support our stated theme. We particularly encourage joint participation with school facility representatives where real-life strategies have been implemented. We encourage school facility representatives with interesting challenges and stories to share them with their peers through presentations, as well. Sessions should not have a commercial or sales-oriented focus.

Sessions will be sixty (60) minutes in length, with a balance of time for presentation and group discussion. AV equipment will be available, if requested. All presentations will be converted to PDF files and posted to the Georgia A4LE website. All proposals for consideration must be submitted on or before February 28, 2019.
