We are currently seeking workshop and presentation proposals for the 2016 New Mexico Humane Conference.
The conference will take place August 18 and 19, 2016 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The primary goal of the conference is to bring engaging continuing education opportunities covering the latest developments in the animal welfare industry to veterinarians, animal control professionals, shelter professionals and volunteers from across the Southwest. We love to include presentations from local and regional speakers on their successes in working with their communities for greater social change. This is a great opportunity to share your organization’s successes with a dynamic audience looking for new ideas to make big impacts in their communities. Selected presenters will receive complimentary registration to the conference and use of presentation equipment. Presenters are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses.
We are seeking speakers on a number of possible topics including but not limited to:
- Surrender prevention programs
- Behavior enrichment, modification and training in a shelter setting
- Wildlife and farm animal topics
- Adoption policies and adopter support
- Tips, techniques and management for smaller or rural shelters
- Community outreach and engagement and humane education
- Crisis communication strategies
- Current animal welfare laws and legislation in New Mexico
All presentations must be 60-90 minutes in length. Preference will be given to quality presentations that are original and are able to generate new thinking or knowledge that can be applied to different animal welfare agencies and goals.
Proposals must be submitted by April 9th to be considered. NMHC reserves the right to select proposals at its sole discretion and may reject a proposal for any reason. To submit a proposal, complete the proposal form at this link.
