Dear Candy,

Thank you very much for your conference proposal submission. Every proposal needs to relate to some aspect of our global mission. The Global Education Conference is not solely focused on general education topics.

Please review our mission: https://www.globaleducationconference.org/page/our-mission and then revise your proposal. Let me know when your proposal is ready for me to review again, and I'll take a look!

Lucy Gray

Conference Co-Chair


Hi Lucy,

I am ready for you to take a look at a new proposal.



Candy - 

I just found your proposal in the Introductions category here in our discussion forum and thought perhaps you had posted it there accidentally while submitting your proposal. I see know that I accepted this awhile ago, and it should have been in our accepted proposals category. This is where I put accepted sessions upon acceptance. Anyway, long story, I'm guessing you might have edited your proposal which bounces it out of the accepted category into the introduction category. I'm moving it to its properly place! Ignore my previous comment which I just deleted! Thanks.
