APSE 2023 Conference Creating Connections Logo

Submit a Proposal to Present at  #APSE2023

This year's conference theme is Creating Connections!

In addition to connecting to the conference theme, each session must promote competitive, integrated employment. This year we are particularly interested in hearing about programs and strategies to reach underserved populations and/or that incorporate the use of technology and "Tech First" principles.

Presenters are encouraged to feature advocates and stories of real-life people affected by the covered topic. Researchers can consider the track within which their research best fits. The APSE Universal Competencies are a great resource for building your session and can be found at this link: https://apse.org/APSE-Universal-Competencies 


  • Diversity in Employment Services
  • Technology in the Workplace
  • Funding and Managing Employment Services and Teams
  • Workplace Supports and Job Coaching
  • Career Exploration, Discovery, and Job Development
