This application will remain open until 3 months before the event or until all coaching positions have been filled.
NOTE: The Idea Network Operations Team works hard to maintain a variety of sessions that are relevant to both the culture and dynamics of each individual event. Here are a few tips to help you select your topic: What is the best idea you’ve had or implemented in your ministry in the last 12 months? What are you most passionate about and experienced in? The general framework for the session is all that is required for this application. The uploads portion of this application is not required to submit your application.
If your break out session is selected for an event, you will be given a registration code for that event along with the timeframe for registration. Using this code is your confirmation that you will be coaching. If a particular session type (coaching, roundtable, panel) is full, we can discuss changing the format.
