Biennial Proposal

Want to bring prestige and recognition to your institution? Consider hosting the 2019 SCRA Biennial Conference!

Call for Proposals for the 2019 Biennial Conference

The Society for Community Research and Action is soliciting proposals from individual institutions and consortia of academics and/or practitioners to host the 2019 SCRA Biennial Conference.

The conference is typically 3 to 4 days in mid to late June and draws 500 to 700 participants. Hosting this exciting event draws national and international recognition to the host institution and enables conference participants to appreciate the sponsoring institution and its location.

If you have interest in possibly being a host, are considering applying, and/or have any questions, we will be delighted to talk with you and send you more information regarding the details required in a formal proposal. We would like to begin conversations as soon as possible.

Proposal Considerations          

The focus of this proposal is on the Local Planning Committee.

Consider the following:

  • Local planning committee members
  • Proposed dates
  • Availability of facilities and accommodations
  • Transportation accessibility
  • Budget

Conference planning and organizing assistance will be provided by SCRA.

For more information see the Planning a Biennial page.
