IFGE 2010: Call for Conference Presenters & Provider Day Posters

The Capital Conference 2010, IFGE’s 24th Annual conference, will have two segments. A Providers Day will be held on April 22nd in collaboration with the George Washington University's Department of Speech and Hearing Science with a theme of “Building Competencies for Serving TransPeople and their Families”.

There will also be a poster presentation session that evening. The Provider Day will allow those who provide speech, medical and mental health services to the transgender community, to share their knowledge with an audience of other providers. We welcome applications for participation in the Provider Day Poster session. Poster presenters will receive a discount off the full registration fee.

Seminars for the main Capital Conference will be held April 23rd-24th with a theme of “Education for Action; Knowing Yourself, Knowing Your Community and Committing to Action”. This component is targeted towards the broader transgender community. The Capital Conference may address gender related issues, emerging ‘trends’ and triumphs in the community, the politics related to gender issues, and other issues of interest. We are also interested in cross-disciplinary contributions from related fields such as medical professionals, mental health providers, researchers and educators of gender studies. Seminar sessions are typically 75 to 90 minutes and may be conducted by one or more speakers or another format as suggested by the submitter. It can present a case study, how to, big idea, theoretical discussion, new topic, a new way of looking at an existing topic, or other material. We welcome all applications for presenters at the Capital Conference.

Presenters chosen for the Capital Conference will be offered a discount off the full conference registration price. All presenters must be registered for Provider Day or the Capital Conference as appropriate.
