APBP invites proposals to present one of the monthly webinar series topics for 2019.
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.

- 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.
- A single consulting firm may not present on more than two (2) webinars in a calendar year.
- APBP encourages consultants who are submitting proposals to include agency folks in your proposal to speak on the webinar.
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 quarterly basis and you will be notified in a timely manor prior to the month you are wishing to present in.
- Presenters must participate in 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 within 30 days after the webinar, or it can be donated back to APBP’s scholarship funds.
