Call For Proposals
The Natural Building Alliance is now seeking presentation and workshop proposals for our upcoming Rocky Mountain Natural Building Conference. The Keynote speaker for this year’s conference will be Chris Magwood of the Endeavour Centre in Ontario, Canada. We plan to have several “breakout” presentations and/or discussions in the three rooms provided at the MARC, similar to our conferences in the past. This year, we also plan to have multiple on-site or off-site hands-on workshops, which could occur during the conference or perhaps a day before or after. If you’d like to be a presenter or workshop host at this year’s conference, please fill out the form below. Please keep in mind the general guidelines below. Your presentation, discussion, or workshop should work with our Theme and Vision for the conference. The Conference planning committee will select proposals based on their inclusion of the theme.
Conference Theme: “All Hands In”
Conference Vision: This conference seeks to promote, share, and foster all forms of natural and sustainable building techniques and systems. It should serve as a melting pot of ideas and goals related to the big reasons why we all do what we do. We’re all here together to take action for our climate and planet. We’re here to help reduce carbon and improve our health. Let’s all start working together.
Please submit your proposal by the deadline of December 1, 2019
On-site Presentation/Round-table Proposal:
Presentations and Discussions will likely need to fit completely into a 1-hour time slot, which should include time for Q&A, social time, etc. Expect between 10 and 50 participants. All rooms will have adequate power supplies for projectors, computers, etc. On-site presentation/Round-table discussions will be held indoors at the MARC. Please note we may ask for your presentation to be made available for free to all conference registrants via a .pdf file or similar. Click on the button below to access the submission form.
Hands-on Workshop Proposal:
There is a small outdoor space at the MARC which may allow for smaller workshops. There is also the possibility for off-site workshops within a short distance from the MARC. Workshop hosts will be responsible for set-up and clean-up of their workshops, although some volunteer help may be available. Workshops have the option of running for a short or long time slot.
