The call for proposals for the 2023 AMCHP Annual Conference is now open, and community members, community-based organizations (CBOs), and tribal entities representatives are invited to submit a proposal to share their work and ideas under any of the 13 subject-focused tracks.
AMCHP has made a formal commitment to anti-racism and racial equity, which we operationalize through our partnerships, communications, and events. AMCHP also recognizes that the work of Title V and our members is enhanced immeasurably by working in partnership with CBOs and tribal governments. A key piece of this partnership is listening to and learning from community members’ expertise about effective initiatives in their communities and collaborating on ways to further support and sustain that work at the state level.
We would like to leverage opportunities like the 2023 AMCHP Annual Conference to live up to our commitments and invite you to participate by submitting and presenting your work either as skills-building sessions, workshops, poster sessions, or roundtables. AMCHP will continue to make an intentional effort to have community members, those working at community-based organizations, and those representing tribal entities feel welcome at the conference as speakers, thought leaders, experts, and partners. We hope you will consider submitting a proposal or partnering on a proposal this year.
The AMCHP Annual Conference will be held May 6-9, 2023, at the New Orleans Marriot in New Orleans, LA, and will offer content in-person and through our virtual conference platform with the theme Cultivating Diverse Leaders in Maternal and Child Health. We look forward to having participants discuss strategies to grow leaders in maternal and child health (MCH) who reflect the diversity of experiences, cultures, and abilities of the people we serve. Our goal is to nurture innovative, creative, and resilient leaders who use their talents to support healthy communities.
We invite you to learn more about the conference theme and start crafting your proposal at this link. All submissions are due Tuesday, November 22, 2022, at 11:59 p.m. PT. Submitters with submissions completed by this deadline will be notified of their session status by the end of December.
