TIP FOR SUBMITTING A PROPOSAL – SAVE IT IN WORD!
- To expedite the process of entering data into the online form, and to ensure you have a copy of your proposal saved (in case you encounter a technical issue while entering data into the online form), it is recommended you first type and save the information for each section in a Word document. (Be sure to stay within the noted word count for each section.) Then simply copy-and-paste your information from that Word file into the online form and submit.
- All required fields must be completed. Your proposal will not be submitted to CHA until you select the "Submit" button at the bottom of the form.
- Once submitted, you may return to view/modify your proposal, until the submission deadline has expired. A list of your submitted proposals will be available for your review/modification. (Visit www.chausa.org/innovativeideas and select "Go to the proposal form." Log-in will be required.)
- You will be notified about selections by early May 2023. If you have questions, please contact Madeline Hantak.

3. *Learning Objectives
State three (3) main learning objectives for your session. Phrase your learning objectives in terms of what participants will be able to do as a result of attending your session. Use observable verbs, such as "list, describe, discuss, identify..." and avoid nonobservable verbs like "understand, recognize, comprehend..." These objectives will appear in the assembly brochure, on-site program and session evaluation forms. Learning objectives should be descriptive of content presented, as attendees will not have access to your session narrative. CHA reserves the right to edit or change session learning objectives for promotional materials.
