Request for AARC 2018 Proposals

 Updated: October 31, 2017

  Tags: Congress

The submission deadline is Dec. 31, 2017. This deadline will not be extended.

AARC invites you to submit proposals for individual lectures or symposia at Summer Forum 2018 and/or AARC Congress 2018.

Individuals may submit proposals related to the practice of cardiorespiratory care. You may submit the proposal with the intent of presenting it yourself or on behalf of someone else.* If you believe you’re a content expert or possess unique knowledge on topics relevant to any AARC specialty section or roundtable, then this is your chance to showcase your expertise on a national stage.

Summer Forum’s annual meeting appeals to managers and educators focused on sharpening their strategic and leadership skills, as well as planning for future curriculum; while AARC’s Congress appeals to more than 6,000 respiratory therapists from around the world seeking the latest developments in respiratory care. Preparing for these annual events takes considerable effort, with planning that begins more than one full year before the meetings.

Summer Forum will be held July 17-19 in San Antonio, TX and AARC Congress 2018 will be held Dec. 4–7 in Las Vegas, NV.

Proposals are encouraged from new and experienced presenters alike. At AARC Congress 2017, nearly 25% of all speakers were first-time presenters. This year it was someone else … next year it could be you! The Program Committee will meet in January to review proposals and construct the Program for next year’s meeting. Proposals submitted after Dec. 31, 2017 will not be reviewed by the committee.

*If you are submitting a proposal on behalf of someone other than yourself, please confirm their agreement to be included in your proposal.
