Now Accepting Summit Program Proposals

2023 ANCA Annual Summit, August 21-25 at The Ecology School in Saco, Maine

We are now accepting program proposals for the ANCA Annual Summit, August 21-25 at The Ecology School in Saco, Maine.  Programs are the core of the Summit experience, allowing for connection with peers and experts in a supportive learning environment. We look forward to hosting a variety of learning opportunities situated in the rustic landscape of The Ecology School's campus.

Summit programming includes Workshops and Facilitated Discussions:

  • Workshops are presentation-based sessions where participants learn in-depth on a single topic and expand their skill set. Workshop presenters should be experienced in the topic and able to effectively communicate the subject material. ANCA Members, Business Partners, and Summit Sponsors are welcome to submit workshop proposals. Workshops can be 90 minutes or (up to) three hours.
  • Facilitated Discussions are conversational sessions where all participants contribute to the discussion; facilitators guide the dialogue but do not give a formal presentation. ANCA Members and Business Partners are welcome to submit a Facilitated Discussion proposal. These sessions are 90 minutes. 

Topics should be relevant to our audience of nature and environmental learning center administrators including executive directors and managers, land managers, education directors, development directors, and board members.
