Call for Abstracts

Share Your Thought Leadership, Solutions, and Real Life Case Studies in FM Campus Technology   

Deadline to Submit (CLOSED):  April 30, 2024  

Share your experiences and best practices with colleagues from across the nation. Since CFTA is a non-profit organization run by volunteers and limited support staff, all money received pays for future conferences and community resources so we cannot offer registration discounts to presenters.  However, as you will find listed below, there are many benefits to presenting and being involved at this higher level of involvement.

Breakout sessions are typically 45 minutes and take place on Wednesday and Thursday of the conference. Topics of special interest from post-conference survey respondents are provided to serve as suggestions, but proposals are not limited to topics on this list. 

View 2023 breakout sessions for reference. 

Benefits of Presenting

  • Receive recognition and feedback about your practice or program
  • Play an important role in leading a national conference
  • Expand your professional portfolio
  • Be part of a dynamic community that has made CFTA's conference a collaborative and resourceful event since 1989
  • Campus presenters get a chance to win a free registration to next year's CFTA conference 
  • For Business Partner sponsors to be eligible for the Ellington Innovation Award, a campus member must actively partner and participate in your presentation 

Business Partner Requirements to Present
