2006 National Conference on CED and the Social Economy - Call for proposals

The 2006 National Conference on Community Economic Development and the Social Economy that will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, March 15-18, 2006, is being organized by the Canadian Community Economic Development Network (CCEDNet), The British Columbia Community Economic Development Network (BCCEDNet), the Community Economic Development Technical Assistance Program (CEDTAP) and hosted by Fast Track to Employment.

The conference title is "Rooting Development in Community" and the event will offer keynote speakers, site visits, workshops, plenary sessions, networking and social events to the 600 participants that are expected.

This year, conference organizers are inviting proposals specifically for five conference streams, as well as other topics of interest. The five streams are: Community Sustainability, Community-Based Enterprises, CED and Youth, Aboriginal CED, and Building Bridges Across Sectors.

Sessions must be one of four formats: introductory level sessions, cracker barrel presentations, successful & innovative experiences, and in-depth analysis. Workshops are 2.5 hours in length, allowing time for presentations, discussion and active learning by participants.

Submitted responses will be used to design the final program, which will be published when registration gets underway in December 2005.

For the full text of the call for proposals and to easily submit a proposal via an on-line form, visit CCEDNet's website.

The deadline for submitting proposals is September 15th.
