Guiding Principles for Your Poster Proposal
The Global Ties U.S. National Meeting is the premier gathering for international exchange professionals. Our conference aims to involve attendees with the latest research, nonprofit management skills, best practices and lessons learned, and more. The National Meeting Committee, comprised of representatives from Global Ties U.S. member organizations and the U.S. Department of State, is seeking poster proposals that will inform and inspire meeting attendees.
What is a poster?Posters are visual presentations focused on a particular topic displayed on bulletin boards during the National Meeting. Presenters stand next to their displays to explain content and answer questions.
Poster content should be grounded in theory, research, or proven best practices, and should be relevant to the conference attendee’s work in international exchange and grassroots nonprofit leadership. All poster proposals should be audience focused and should maximize meaningful engagement with the content through visuals and presentation of key findings.
Please note that honoraria or travel stipends are not available for presenters. Incomplete poster proposal submissions will not be considered nor accepted. Due to the timing of the Call for Poster Proposals, it is possible to submit a poster proposal for research that is currently being conducted and will conclude by November 30, 2018. Final posters are due January 7, 2019. Each presenter/presenter team is responsible for printing their own poster.
The 2019 National Meeting, produced by Global Ties U.S., is a professional conference dedicated to the advancement of international exchanges and posters should reflect this. Global Ties U.S. reserves the right to restrict, prohibit or evict any poster and poster presenter who, in the opinion of Global Ties U.S., detracts from the character of the conference.
The National Meeting is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by Global Ties U.S.
