General Proposal Guidelines
Both members and non-members of TCPEA may submit proposals for consideration. Only original work that has not been previously: (a) published, (b) presented at TCPEA/TASA Midwinter Conference, and/or (c) presented at another professional meeting is eligible for consideration. If a portion of the work has been previously presented, but not published, and the new original contribution is substantial, the work is eligible for consideration, but only if the prior work is explicitly acknowledged.
