As part of our ongoing efforts to foster collaboration and provide networking opportunities, Children’s Advocacy Centers™ of Texas would like to invite you to present a poster session at the CACTX Partners in Courage Conference in Austin, TX.
What is a Poster Session?
The Center Showcase – Poster Session will provide the opportunity for CACs from around the state to share their successful ideas with peers. Poster sessions are displayed on special frame structures (see picture below). Pictures, graphs, data and text are used to illustrate the presentation. Poster presentations provide other conference participants an opportunity to quickly and easily become acquainted with your topic. An effective poster presentation highlights, with visual display, the main points or components of your topic. Poster Sessions can cover any project or program but some suggested subject categories for poster sessions are:
Child Abuse Prevention Month Activities, Court School, Using Volunteers, Services Provided to Families, Information and Referral Services, MDT/Case Review, Team Building, Medical Services/Accompaniment, Mental Health Services, Prevention Curriculums/Programs, Unique Fundraisers, Training, etc.
How do I submit a proposal for a Poster Session?
The deadline for poster proposal abstracts is August 16, 2013. Proposals received after this date may be considered if there is still available space for participation. Check back for information on how to submit your proposal.
