It’s the first big announcement of the season! For many of us, it’s our favorite day of the year.

As we start to put our seventh conference together, we want to know what’s on your mind, because your input keeps our conference diverse, topical, and trenchant. To make sure your suggestion is fully integrated into our system, please spend a few minutes filling out our online submission form below (these tips should come in handy). Once we’ve received your responses, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail.

Here’s another important point: If you’re planning to attend Dad 2.018, we suggest you click on our Registration page and buy your ticket. Because our event coincides with Mardi Gras celebrations and the New Orleans tricentennial, we anticipate our earliest sellout yet. As always: if you buy a ticket and are subsequently chosen as a speaker, we will refund your entire purchase price.

We’ll begin announcing our Speakers and Panels later this fall. In order to keep up with our announcements over the next several months, you can Like our FB hub and our Event Page, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and/or subscribe to our newsletter (right there in the right-hand margin —>).

This form will be live until Friday, September 29, and you can enter as many times as you like. Thanks again, and we hope to see you in New Orleans!
