Call for Presenters and Presiders


Presenter and Presider Application Descriptions and Links are listed below.

Please use the form below to submit your applications to present and/or preside.


Deadline for submission of presentation proposals is February 1, 2020.


Proposals are now being accepted to present or preside during the 2020 Conference in Spokane, Washington.  AMATYC presentations should support the pillars of IMPACT. Each proposal will be acknowledged by an email receipt. If you do not receive an email receipt within three business days after submission, please contact the AMATYC Office right away. Letters of invitation to present at the conference are issued in April. 


Proposal Review Criteria: Proposals are reviewed and rated by the Program Committee with attention to the appropriateness for mathematics educators in the first two years of college and overall topic balance of the program. Consideration is given to the pillars of IMPACT cited above. Proposals from faculty and other professionals currently engaged in two-year college education are especially encouraged.  This is a blind review process and the title, summary, and description should not include the name(s) of the presenter(s).


The following program keys have been created to ensure creation of a balanced program.  Please choose the option(s) that best aligns with your topic when submitting your proposal.  When developing your presentation and selecting program keys, please keep in mind the four pillars of IMPACT:

PR - proficiency 

OW - ownership 

E - engagement 

SS - student success


 Please contact Judy Williams, Program Coordinator, with any questions.
