NAJIT is now accepting presentation proposals for its 43rd Annual Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from June 3 through June 5, 2022.
NAJIT’s Annual Conference is the premier event for language professionals and stakeholders of language services in the judiciary and beyond. Lead the conversation by preparing a session proposal. Our sessions are highly interactive and provide participants with relevant content and practical tools they can apply in their work. We invite you to help shape the future of interpreting and translation by proposing a session today.
Proposals may be submitted for either a pre-conference workshop, a main conference session, or both as long as they are submitted separately.
NAJIT is considering offering a hybrid event. While NAJIT does not expect the entire conference to be available online, we would like to provide several components virtually. Speakers should be prepared to present in person in Fort Lauderdale unless NAJIT decides to hold an entirely virtual event.
Presenting at the NAJIT conference is a privilege and a mark of distinction in the profession. Our attendees expect and deserve the best content that we can provide. Proposals are evaluated and suggestions may be offered to meet quality standards and space/time limitations. Acceptance notices will be sent in early 2022.
The deadline for submitting proposals for both pre-conference workshops and main conference sessions is January 3, 2022.
Main conference presenters are entitled to a 15% discount off the registration fee. They receive no other reimbursement of expenses.
Pre-conference workshop presenters receive an honorarium of $300 for a three-hour session or $450 for a six-hour session. Pre-conference workshop presenters will also be reimbursed for eligible travel expenses up to $600*. If, in addition to a pre-conference presentation, a presenter proposes and is selected to deliver an additional session during the main conference, their conference registration fee will be waived. When submitting a proposal for a pre-conference workshop, submitting a main conference proposal is encouraged. **PLEASE SUBMIT A SEPARATE FORM FOR EACH PRESENTATION.
*Only one honorarium and travel reimbursement are offered per workshop. Joint presenters will split the honorarium and travel reimbursement. Read NAJIT’s financial policy for complete details.
Presenters must register for the main conference if you wish to attend any conference events.
