  • Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the NAWM State/Tribal/Federal Coordination Meeting Planning Committee.
  • There is limited space available on the meeting agenda, therefore not all abstracts will be selected.

  • Abstracts should be 300 words or less and must be submitted by the June 13, 2022, deadline for consideration. Abstracts longer than 300 words in length will not be considered.
  • All submittals will receive a response about the status of their abstract by June 20, 2022.
  • For those abstracts selected for presentation at the meeting, a tentative date and time for each presentation will be sent to presenters by June 27, 2022. However, dates and times for presentations are subject to change within the conference dates, if needed.
  • Presenters will receive a formal invitation letter with meeting details and guidelines for their presentation. Presenters must confirm their participation by July 4, 2022.
  • Biography information must be in narrative format; resume format will not be accepted. (Please limit response to about 250 words or 950 characters.) Biography information can be submitted on the Abstract Form Here.
