Call for Proposals -- Due January 1

Educational Forums are an integral part of the PTK Catalyst programming each year. These informative break-out sessions cover a variety of topics and give both members and advisors the opportunity to broaden horizons personally and within Phi Theta Kappa.

Who presents these forums? We are calling on YOU to help! Do you have something to share with the PTK Catalyst attendees? If so, submit a proposal below. Phi Theta Kappa is offering more tracks than ever in 2018; take a look and see where your topic fits. You can submit as many proposals as you like as long as they are received by January 1, 2017.

*All presenters MUST be registered for PTK Catalyst. Submitting a proposal does NOT register you for Catalyst. Find registration information here.*

* Each forum should be approximately 30 minutes and should include a presentation, a collaborative activity, and a group discussion.

* Proposal Guidelines can be reviewed here.
