The NH Progressive Summit planning committee welcomes proposals for workshops or roundtables for Saturday, June 25th. Sessions will be one hour long in the morning and an hour and a half in the afternoon. There will also be one hour set aside for “Ignite” presentations – during this hour presenters have 5 minutes to provide an issue briefing or update, or to give a short motivational speech, on the topic of their choosing to all NH Progressive Summit participants. Topics can vary from personal stories to practical tips to funny or inspirational big-picture ideas, and creativity is encouraged here. Popular education tactics, slam poetry, powerpoint presentations, or the tested and true speech all work. Individuals and issue campaigns selected for Ignite will be required to provide a live or video-taped preview one week in advance of the summit and content cannot promote any candidate or candidate committee.
In all of the proposals we are looking for sessions that provide new skills or provide important information about progressive issues facing New Hampshire in 2016 and beyond. Please be prepared to highlight how your session will help build the progressive movement or advance a progressive policy in New Hampshire.
The deadline date for submitting proposals is Thursday, June 2nd as there is limited space for sessions; additional workshops will be scheduled as space allows. It is therefore important to submit your proposal as early as possible to ensure the best chance for your session being approved. Upon receipt of your proposal the Program Committee will decide if it fits and will notify you as soon as a decision is made.
