The Virtual Symposium will not have as many sessions as past in-person conferences. This year we will have approximately 48 sessions, most session slots are already filled with pre-selected session topics from various federal agencies and top evaluated speakers from past conferences. There are less than 20 time-slots available that will be selected from this RFP process. Competition will be high. We normally receive several hundred submissions each year.  

All those submitting proposals will be notified no later than Friday, Dec 31st, 2021 of our decision. If selected, the National ADA Symposium will cover Full conference registration for one speaker per session.  


Thank you in advance for your interest, application, and willingness to make the National ADA Symposium a continued success. Feel free to share this with other colleagues and experts in the ADA field.


Respectfully yours,
