Although this year we will have approximately 100 workshops, most session slots are already filled with pre-selected session topics from various federal agencies and top evaluated speakers from past conferences. There are only approximately 25 time slots available that will be selected from this RFP process. Competition will be high. We normally receive several hundred submissions each year. All those submitting proposals will be notified no later than Friday, November 15, 2019 of our decision.

If selected, the National ADA Symposium will cover airfare/mileage, hotel, conference registration for one speaker per session. In addition, two breakfasts and two lunches will be provided at the conference to all attendees and speakers.  

Thank you in advance for your interest, application, and willingness to make the National ADA Symposium a continued success. Feel free to share this with other colleagues and experts in the ADA field.

If you have further questions or difficulty with the form, please contact Michael Edwards, National ADA Symposium Program Coordinator at or call 573-882-3600
