Call for Submittals

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 03.31.20 at 5:00 PM

The 2020 theme for Georgia Chapter of the Association for Learning Environments Summer Conference is “2020 – Establishing a Clear Vision for Schools”. The theme is a play on the year combined with determining how to see more clearly the future ahead in school design, construction, and function. As we move forward the future seems to have more questions than answers. It is our desire to assist school personnel in planning for those uncertainties, offering alternatives to conventional ways of doing things, and provide tools and skills to maintain flexibility in decision making in this ever-changing landscape.

The Summer Conference is quickly approaching and we anticipate the best conference to date. 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.

Please include the following information with your submission:

  • Title
  • Presentation Summary (please limit to one paragraph)
  • Possible Speakers and summary of qualifications

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 March 31, 2020.
