To submit a proposal, please email the following to Christy Brimmer, VMN Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org:
Presenter proposals are being accepted until May 15, 2021. However, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible so we can confirm continuing education credits for marketing purposes.

Our Fall Conference theme in 2021 was "Building Bridges," and we focused on providing tools and insights to help ADR professionals build bridges between people and communities.
