About the

The annual NSDTA Education Conference is the ideal setting to share our collective work focused on building capacity for training and organizational development in human services through our national network of membership. The NSDTA conference is jointly hosted by the American Public Human Services (APHSA) and their affinity group, the National Staff Development and Training Association (NSDTA).

The conference brings together workforce development experts to connect, learn, and exchange best practices. It is designed to support trainers, facilitators, and researchers in the human services field, empowering them to shape the future of human services programs through collaboration, integration, and modernization. The conference also provides guidance on effective methods for monitoring organizational development.

Intent for Call for Proposals

The 2024 NSDTA Planning Committee is seeking proposals and presentations relevant to current topics and priorities across the broad sector of human services. The content for this conference will be organized around six tracks:

  • Evaluation/Research

  • Curriculum Development & Facilitation

  • Human Services Leadership

  • Organization Development

  • Workforce Development & Planning

  • Advancing Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion

Important Considerations for Proposals

  • Using the program and operational areas, NSDTA is interested in proposals that have practical applications to advance human services policy and compliance priorities.

  • Your submission should address best practices, cross-sector, evidenced-based, innovative, promising practices, and important foundational content.

  • Content should reflect the current landscape of agencies and the communities being served.

  • Proposals from the private sector community must have an agency client, community-based organization, and/or thought leaders.

  • Demonstrate how your topic addresses and/or incorporates Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (EDIB). (e.g., content, approach, panel diversity, or impact).

  • Does the proposal include or incorporate the perspectives of people with lived experience who have received services from human services?
