Overview: 

The Content Committee assists in soliciting proposal submissions and participates in the judging of all proposals. The committee develops the session and workshop schedule based on judging results. Onsite, committee members monitor sessions and workshops to ensure rooms do not overfill and act as liaisons for presenters relaying problems/needs to staff/tech crew.

  • The Call for Participation is the process through which educators and industry experts can apply to present sessions and workshops at the convention.  The Call for Participation information is posted on the TCEA website. The submission deadline was May 31. Late proposals are currently being accepted for past presenters with merit.
  • Evaluations of sessions were completed online. All board members are required to participate in the session evaluation process. Each session must be evaluated by a minimum of 3 board members. The evaluation process took place June 1-15.
  • The Content Committee members will select sessions based on the evaluations and remarks. Priority will be given to educator-led sessions and a suggested limitation of exhibitor-led presentations. (Exhibitors may also choose to apply for an Exhibitor Showcase through the Exhibitor Services Kit sent by TCEA’s Events and Exhibit Manager.)
  • The TCEA office will schedule the sessions selected, based on availability of rooms. Sessions should be scheduled to maximize the available room space with the most popular sessions scheduled in the largest rooms.
  • Once the committee selects the presentations and workshops the staff liaison, Meaghan Rhame, is responsible for scheduling, notifying presenters, collecting contracts, and monitoring cancellations from presenters to fill gaps as needed.
