Call for Proposals

The ETOM Conference is back to “in-person.” The first F2F conference since 2019! The conference will have 45-minute sessions in four (4) breakouts.  As always, the FOCUS of the fall conference is on faculty; what they need to hear and what they have to say! Our theme this year is “Moments.”

Faculty, staff, and administrators are encouraged to submit a proposal by October 4. Submit your proposal here. This year’s conference is at Grand Valley State University on November 4, 2022, from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm in the Russel H. Kirkhof Center.
