Submit Topics for the 52nd Annual Meeting -- Now Through February 15!

Author: Southeastern Council of Foundations


After last year’s Annual Meeting, we opened the Call for Topics for the 52nd Annual Meeting, slated to come to Asheville, North Carolina, this November – thank you to everyone who has already submitted their ideas!

Today, we are reopening the Call for Topics for a few weeks, through February 15. Last year was difficult for everyone, but a new year provides a chance for inspiration and ideas – and we want to make sure these are reflected on the Annual Meeting agenda. 

We also cannot ignore the events of the past week and the implications for our democracy. We know many of our members are thinking about these issues, too, and want to make sure they’re discussed in Asheville.

Visit our Call for Topics now to make your submissions, as well as suggestions for keynote and plenary speakers. Our 2021 Session Design Committee, comprised of a diverse and representative group of SECF members, will use your input to design sessions, recruit speakers, and organize the 2021 Annual Meeting program. We may not be able to incorporate every suggestion, but you can be sure we’ll take all of your ideas seriously. 

Also keep in mind that once a topic is selected, the Session Design Team will lead the work of developing it into a session and may take your idea in a surprising direction!

If you have questions about the Call for Topics, or want to help plan the 2021 Annual Meeting, contact Quincy Kelly, SECF’s production consultant, at qkelly@secf.org
