Submit a Proposal


Proposal submissions open March 17, 2021 and close April 16, 2021.

Please review the guidelines outlined below to frame your proposals before beginning the proposal process as some changes have been made for the 2021 Conference.

Important reminders about proposal submissions:

  • Your NCHC Membership must be current by the submission deadline of April 16th for your proposal to be considered.
  • If you will need an LCD for your presentation you must request it within the submission process. LCDs are ONLY available for certain session types, and will require a $75 LCD fee.
  • NCHC limits individuals to two presentations at the Annual Conference. Only the first two presentations submitted with your name as a presenter will be reviewed.
  • For NCHC21, proposals will be reviewed using a blind review process. This means that in the first round of review, no identifying information about presenters will be included for reviewers; proposals will be considered solely on the strength and content of the submitted proposal abstract. Please refrain from including any identifying information in your submitted abstract.
  • Please be aware of any travel limitations that may be in place at your institution.
