*Note: We recognize that the COVID-19 Pandemic consumed a lot of time, resources, and energy this Spring semester. However, we encourage you not to submit proposals specifically focused on the response to the pandemic as we would like to keep the conference focused on moving the field of BIT, case management, and threat assessment forward. If you have information you wish to share, we have created a landing page for COVID resources and would be happy to include yours. Please email any resources you would like to include to Makenzie at makenzie.schiemann@tngconsulting.com.

By submitting this program proposal, I agree that any presentation materials will be submitted by September 25, 2020 to be made available to attendees in advance of the conference. I agree that NaBITA is entitled to use and distribute these materials to members and conference attendees.
