2019 BCSTH ATF Call for Proposal for Workshops

The BC Society of Transition Houses invites you to submit a proposal to present at our Annual Training Forum, taking place October 23rd -25th, 2019 at the Radisson Hotel Vancouver Airport in Richmond, BC.

This year’s theme is Strength in Solidarity: Coming Together to Share Promising Practices. In 2019, BCSTH is honouring the dynamic work of our membership and the wider anti-violence sector to allow us to learn from each other, find common ground and enhance the ways in which we provide services for all women, children and youth experiencing violence. We look forward to receiving proposals for workshops that explore innovative approaches to support services for women, children and youth fleeing and/or living with the effects of violence and that foster collective strength.

Our Annual Training Forum is host to over 300 anti-violence workers who support women, youth and children in a variety of capacities including Transition and Second Stage Houses, Safe Homes, Prevention, Education, Advocacy, Counselling and Empowerment (PEACE) and Violence is Preventable (VIP) programs, anti-violence support workers, managers and executive directors.

Please complete the online form or the fillable PDF by Tuesday, May 21st. Friday, May 31st. (Closing date extended). You are welcome to attach or email any additional documentation and links to video or audio clips that might provide us with more insight into your presentation style and content (i.e. resume, testimonials, evaluation comments, detailed workshop description, social media, media, etc.)

Workshop sessions will vary from 1 hour or 2 hour time slots. Remuneration is provided per workshop, and includes:

  • $200 for each workshop
  • Up to 2 (two) complimentary full conference registrations per workshop

**Transportation, accommodation, and parking are the sole responsibility of the presenter.

**Workshops that do not receive adequate registrations may be cancelled. In this instance, BCSTH will notify the presenters at least 1 week prior to the event.

**Workshops with multiple presenters will share the remuneration.
