Join us at the 2024 National Docent Symposium in Atlanta as a Breakout Session or a Sip & Share table talk presenter. Proposal Deadline Extended 

There's still time to be a part of it!  We've extended the proposal  deadline to November 1, 2023.

Take advantage of two opportunities to share your experience, knowledge, and touring and engagement strategies with your peers. Click here to watch the Program Chairs describe the options.

Breakout Sessions, the traditional 60-minute workshop, will feature up to 3 presenters sharing innovative touring and engagement strategies to engage with various audiences or ideas on expanding, training, or diversifying your docent corps.

Sip & Share is an exciting new programming initiative featuring table presenters sharing best practices in 15-20 minute sessions. In this two-hour program, docents will rotate among the tables, drink in hand, connect with their colleagues, and learn new ways to enhance their docenting practice.

Consider sharing your topic in both! Your Sip & Share presentation could hone in on one aspect of your Breakout Session topic. Or consider expanding your Sip & Share into a Breakout Session.
