Reimagine Conference 2022 Session Proposals

Due: July 31, 2022 by 11:59 pm (Central Time)


The 2022 reimagine conference will take place on October 11 and 12, 2022.  We are planning a hybrid event. In-person events and activities will take place somewhere in Lake County, Indiana. Online aspects of the conference will be hosted on WebEx Events. We hope the hybrid structure will allow us to reach a wide and diverse audience while creating the opportunity for face-to-face engagement with the conference content. 


If we learn anything from the science of ACEs and trauma, it is that actions taken today have consequences, either positive or negative, far into the future.  Every community sector is invited to consider ways that their presence and actions in the community support healthy development and healing and whether there are ways that they perpetuate toxic stress and hinder wellness.


The theme of the 2022 conference is “Healing Our Future.” The focus will continue to be understanding the impact of toxic stress (at every stage of development) on behavior, on relationships, and on communities as well as the prevention and remediation of these effects through care, connection, and community. The audiences for the conference will include Mental Health Professionals, Public/Community Service Providers, Educators, Community Development Professionals, and Business/Community Leaders. We encourage prospective presenters to develop their presentations to attract one or more of the identified audiences.


Sessions will be 75 minutes long. Sessions should be non-promotional.  Continuing education credits will be available. Session proposals are welcome to have more than one speaker from more than one organization. Speakers will receive a complimentary conference registration and are welcome to participate in all conference sessions and activities. For presenters travelling more than 150 miles, we will also provide travel expenses and lodging.
