Webinar Proposal

APBP invites proposals to present one of the monthly webinar series topics for 2018. 

Webinar topics must relate directly to subjects useful to professionals and advocates working in the field of bicycling and walking: planning, design, engineering, education, encouragement, evaluation, enforcement and advocacy. Innovative approaches that have achieved measurable results are most desirable. Presentations must be evidence-based.

WEBINAR TIMING:

  • Webinars are one hour (approximately 45 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes for questions), scheduled at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time on the third Wednesday of each month except in the event of a conflict with an official holiday (religious or secular).
  • Some webinars may be extended to 75 or 90 minutes at the discretion of APBP staff in collaboration with the presenter(s). 

 PROPOSAL GUIDELINES:

  • Make every word count. Provide succinct, detailed answers.
  • Examples of verbs to use when framing the learning objectives of your webinar: count; define; describe; estimate; give examples; identify; list; name; outline; predict; read; recall; recognize; reproduce; state; summarize; write; discuss.
  • Sample Learning Objectives:“Bicycling, Walking and Transit – Connections That Work”
        • To describe innovative transit programs that increase ridership by integrating bicyclists and walkers
        • To identify points in transit planning that require attention to bicycle and pedestrian functionality
        • To list marketing programs that capture the desirability of multimodal trips
  • Tell the story and focus on the visuals
  • APBP may choose to add one (1) webinar per quarter that isn’t part of the monthly series. If you have an idea for a topic not already programmed, please submit a proposal and select "I’m suggesting an alternate topic" from the Webinar Month/Topic drop-down menu.
  • APBP will not accept webinar topics intended purely to promote commercial products. Products may be mentioned during a presentation only if relevant to the topic and broadly useful to communities seeking to increase bicycling and walking for transportation. APBP staff will gladly provide guidance to interested suppliers on what type of content is acceptable.

REVIEW & APPROVAL PROCESS:

  • After reviewing your proposal, APBP may ask you to modify it to meet the specific objectives of the webinar. APBP may accept the proposal whole or in part, depending on how the review team develops the webinar’s content.
  • Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis and you will be notified at least 60 prior to the month you are wishing to present in.

PRESENTER EXPECTATIONS:

  • Presenters must deliver a planning/practice session as well as the webinar itself. The approximate time commitment (besides your own preparation time) is two to three hours.
  • Presenters will be ask to supply a head shot type photo and short bio (200 words or less) prior to the webinar.
  • Presenters will be asked to provide a PowerPoint version of their slides to APBP 48 hours prior to the live webinar. APBP does NOT give out a Presenter's PPT slides, but will format them into a PDF and make them available for download for all registered webinar attendees the morning of the live webinar.

An honorarium of $600 per monthly webinar is available, divided evenly among the presenters. The honorarium will be paid 30 days after the webinar, or it can be donated back to APBP’s scholarship funds.
