Submit a Proposal to Present at  #APSE2024

This year's conference theme is Navigating Tomorrow Together!

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 equity, diversity and inclusion 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 


  • Effective Practices in Employment Engagement and Community Partnerships
  • Advancing Employment First Through Policy and Research
  • Charting a Course: Funding and Managing Employment Services
  • Innovative Job Coaching Strategies
  • Navigating Job Development and Career Pathways
  • Advancing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
  • Supporting Underserved Populations
  • Emerging Leaders Advancing Employment First

Submit to present a 60-minute breakout session, a 60-minute Power of 5 session, or a 3-hour pre-conference workshop!
