2020 Request for Proposals

Speak at the ADRP 2020 International Conference

We are very excited to share the Request for Presentations for ADRP’s 2020 International Conference, September 23–25 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are pleased to bring speakers who have vast experience working with donors from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds, and who will share a diverse array of viewpoints and expectations about philanthropy and the institutions with which they are engaged. 

The deadline for submissions has now passed. Thank you to all who submitted proposals!


  • We welcome a broad range of topics that would be of interest to donor relations and stewardship professionals.
  • Attendees have a wide range of experience. A session can be general in scope or targeted to a demographic such as experience level, field (educational, healthcare, social service, arts, etc.), or shop size. The choice is yours.
  • Make your session dynamic! You are encouraged to interact with the audience—people learn best when they’re engaged with the speaker via discussion and/or questions. Presenters can fly solo or partner with others, however, the 50% registration discount applies to the session, not each presenter.
  • Our April 20 deadline has now passed.

If you have any questions about this form or the RFP process, please contact us at [email protected]
