Call For Proposals is Open!

The Call for Proposals for the 2024 AMCHP Annual Conference is now open! AMCHP is seeking proposals for skills-building sessions, workshops, posters, and roundtables that support the AMCHP 2024 theme, Partnering with Purpose.

Our theme focuses on how people who work in maternal and child health (MCH) have the power to be intentional about who we partner with and how we can engage with partners to make a positive impact on children and families. Our theme calls us to admit that we cannot know or do everything on our own and recognize that we can do more by working together. Partnering with purpose opens up a space for us to clarify our intentions and combine our resources, ideas, and skills for greater impact in our communities.

The conference theme invites us to ask important questions about power – How do good partnerships share and build power? How are our partnerships amplifying the voices of the people we serve? Partnering with purpose is authentic and based on relationships rather than contracts or outputs. It is the opposite of being self-centered and insincere. Partnering with purpose encourages us to think about seeking out new people or organizations we may not have worked with before, but who have a similar vision and goals.  

AMCHP encourages those working in community organizations and tribal entities, family leaders, students, and early career professionals to share their completed (or in progress) work. Given this year’s theme, it is especially important that AMCHP recognizes that the work of Title V and our members is enhanced immeasurably by working in partnership with community organizations, tribal governments, and family leaders. A key piece of this partnership is listening to and learning from people with lived experience about effective initiatives in their communities and collaborating on ways to further support and sustain that work at the state level. It is also important that we hold space for the voices and ideas of those exploring or preparing to explore career pathways in our diverse field. [read more] 

Inspired by our theme and want to know more? Please review our Call for Proposals Webinar slides that explain the submission process. A recording of the related webinar will be created and shared as a resource to aid your proposal development and submission.  

Ready to get started? Submit a proposal under one of 10 subject-focused tracks by Friday, November 3 at 11:59pm PT. You can choose from more than two dozen topic keyword tags to help describe your proposal. The deadline is firm and will not be extended. Submitters with completed proposals by this deadline will be notified of their session status by the end of December.
