Call for Presentations

Abstract Proposals

MSECA's primary mission is promoting the professional development of our members through education so we're always looking for new presenters, topics, and content that would be interesting to Environmental Consultants.

Abstract Requirements:

If you are interested in presenting at a MSECA meeting or a webinar, please provide MSECA with an abstract containing the following information. Proposals will be evaluated based on this criteria.


Concise, Accurate, Interesting/Memorable


Describe your session in 100 words or fewer. In your description, please think about how the attendee and their company will benefit from the information you are presenting.

As long as the presentation is primarily educational and scientific in nature, non-sales presentations of product / service solutions are permissible. PLEASE accurately state this in your description. Our attendees don't mind solutions explanations as long as they know that's what it is going to be.

Learning Objectives

Please list the three most important things that attendees will take away from this presentation. This information will greatly aid MSECA in promoting your presentation. Lists that complete the phrase "at the conclusion of this education, attendees will know/be able to/understand..." are the most effective.

Target Audience

Who is your intended audience? Our membership ranges from people just getting into the field to consultants with 20+ years of experience. MSECA is comfortable with having presentations that range from introductory to advanced education but it's very important that the audience knows what to expect.

Presentation Length

How long, without Q&A time, will your presentation last? Concise presentations are more than acceptable but it's important for scheduling purposes that we accurately know the length.

Presenter Bio

Name(s), experience, and qualifications of the presenter(s). Bios under 200 words tend to work best. This information will be used in promoting the webinar and for introducing the presenter.


Abstracts should be submitted to info@mseca.org.

We welcome any suggestions about presenters in our field; please feel free to forward suggestions to info@mseca.org.

The Process:

  1. When an abstract is received, an acknowledgment is sent.

  2. The abstract is then reviewed by the appropriate MSECA Committee.

  3. Additional information may be requested if there are any questions about the information contained in the abstract.

  4. Following final review by MSECA, a decision is made on approving the presentation.

  5. The Committee and/or Staff will then follow up with the presenter on the decision, and if approved, provide additional information on the next steps.
