Program Objective
To create a diverse program of mobile workshops in terms of topic, mode of transportation, and geography.
Program Focus
We are looking for proposals that:
·         Showcase best practices AND/OR lessons learned (workshops are intended to feature both the “highs” and “lows”)
·         Provide a unique experience
·         Would be perceived as a good value (cost vs. the experience)
·         Are relevant and transferable
·         Feature experts in the field who will provide an engaging workshop
Submittal Procedure and Requirements
·         Applications must be submitted through APA’s website at http://www.planning.org/conference/index.htm
·         Applications will be reviewed by the 2013 Mobile Workshops Committee and selected based on the stated criteria. 
·         In reviewing session proposals the Mobile Workshops Committee may suggest that proposals be amended, combined or augmented to meet program objectives and focus
·         Applicants are asked to provide a presentation that goes beyond the basic facts to tell a deeper story regarding the challenges of the plan, project or program and how they were overcome
·         In addition proposals will be evaluated based on:
o        Overall quality and focus
o        Completeness of proposal 
o        Appropriateness of mode of transportation
o        Stated learning objectives
o        Uniqueness and creativity
Thank you for making Chicago 2013 a success!
