COABE National Conference 2021 Call for Presentations

Call for presentations is now open! Deadline has been extended to November 15, 2020.

New this year we will provide the presenter with the choice of how they would like to deliver their presentation(s). Due to recent events with moving our 2020 conference to a full virtual platform we have decided to move forward with a hybrid version of our national conference going forward. This will offer those who are not able to attend in person the opportunity to still participate in our national conference from a distance. For those presenters who are looking to present both in-person and virtually this will be done during your live in-person presentation. 

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email
