Call for Speakers

Are you an industry expert, passionate historian or research professional willing to share your experiences, insights and knowledge with colleagues and peers?

History Redcliffe is now accepting proposals for educational sessions at the nationally recognised Queensland State Conference for Family and Local History 2022, which is taking place 21st – 23rd October 2022.

We are looking for dynamic speakers and important topics that will provide the best possible experience for attendees. This is a great opportunity for you to give back to your profession by sharing your knowledge and insights. 

Attendees today are looking for more out of their conference education experience—hands-on learning, interaction with the presenter, case studies, real-world examples, and opportunities to dive deeper into topics. We strongly encourage you to consider new ways to incorporate these types of interactions while you are developing your session. Be sure to indicate in your submission how you intend to deliver this interactive type of learning environment.

Submission close on Friday 18th March 2022.
