Workshop facilitation is a great way for you to share valuable knowledge with your fellow PAL®s and PAL® Sponsors. It is also a good way for your group to receive a discount or waiver of registration fees!
In exchange for presenting a workshop, we will waive the registration fee for up to 10 PAL®s. High School PAL®s who present at the Middle School Conference can apply the waiver to their fees for the High School Conference. Please contact us for details!
If you would like to present on more than one topic, please fill out and submit a form for each topic.

Please complete the form below at least 30 days prior to the conference.
