GET ON THE FAST TRACK TO CMG PAPER ACCEPTANCE
Author by Denise P. Kalm
Have a great idea for a paper for CMG but don’t know where to start? Have a general thought but need help deciding what to cover for a one-hour session? Mentors will soon be available to help you craft a quality paper or presentation, so you can enjoy the status of ‘speaker’ at the 2015 CMG Conference in San Antonio. In the years since the mentor program began, those who worked with a mentor not only completed their project but in most cases, were accepted to speak at the Conference. It’s a proven success method.
Mentors can help you come up with an abstract, outline your work, understand what fits in a one-hour slot, edit your paper and even help you figure out the best way to present it. They aren’t there to be a co-author, but most people find they benefit from this assistance.
The paper process has changed this year and in some cases, you may be assigned a mentor after posting an abstract. But you can request a mentor at any time after January 15, 2015 by emailing [email protected]. We’ll match you up with someone who has presented at CMG before and knows the ins and outs of crafting great work. It’s never too early to get started. Think about what you could share with our members. If you’re doing the job now, you know things we all want to learn.
