I realize that October seems a long way off, but here in the PBCC office, we are already hard at work planning the 2010 Annual Conference! This year’s conference will be held on Wednesday, October 13th at the Harrisburg Hilton.
One of the first orders of business is to figure out what workshops we are going to offer. We do have some ideas, but we are putting out a call for submissions. If you have presented a workshop in the past or know someone who has presented one that you think would be appropriate for our event, please let us know. We are looking for workshops that fit into the following tracks:
Leadership, Advocacy & Education
Advances in Treatment
Research and Clinical Trials
Breast Cancer Survivorship
The Mind/Body Connection
Caring for the Caregiver
Of course, you’re not limited to these tracks; they are simply suggestions. The sky is the limit so be creative! Workshops are one hour long. The deadline for proposals is Friday, March 12th at 4pm. Head to the PBCC Annual Conference website for more details about what your proposal should include and other important information!
One last important note. Please make sure that the suggested presenter is available to present at our conference on October 13, 2010, before you submit your proposal. The PBCC applies for continuing education credits for the workshops and cannot replace presenters once workshops are confirmed.
Thanks for your input and we look forward to reading your proposals!
