Our vision for this large-scale global event is to provide attendees with a one-of-a-kind impactful experience. We are looking for subject matter experts to help us review the Call for Proposals (CFP) we will receive for ICF Converge 21.
We are looking for sessions that not only provide a rich educational experience but also explore new ideas and theories.
As a CFP Reviewer, your responsibility would be to review several proposals and score them based on an established criterion. We will be gathering extensive information in the CFP process to help you accurately score these submissions. If you plan to submit a proposal to present, you may still apply to review proposals in a content group other than the one you applied for.
Below are some dates and details to help you better understand the time commitment of this role.
