Those submitting proposals must be prepared to write the content, facilitate delivery of the content, and provide assessment criteria to evaluate a participant's knowledge of the subject matter upon completion.

Please indicate in your submission whether or not you have presented in a virtual environment and/or your comfort level with this content delivery method. ALP requests permission to record your session(s) for limited and controlled viewing. These recorded sessions will become the property of ALP.
