Calls for Proposals

Storyboard Proposals

Each year, we accept storyboard proposals from individuals interested in displaying their improvement work on posterboards at the National Forum. Attendees are encouraged to submit a storyboard proposal to have a posterboard of your improvement story, innovation, or success on display. The deadline for submitting storyboards was October 1, 2013 at 5 PM ET.

 

This year, the Storyboard Reception will take place on Tuesday, December 10 from 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM. During this time, all storyboard presenters are asked to stand next to their posters to answer questions. There will be other storyboard viewing times, but storyboard presenters are not required to stay with their storyboard during those times.  

 

All 2013 accepted storyboards can be viewed here.

 

Poster Size Requirements
Storyboards will be mounted on 3 foot x 5 foot wood panel boards. The panel has no frame and therefore, the usable posting space is the full 3 feet wide x 5 feet high. The panel is freestanding with two small feet on the bottom so as not to interfere with the amount of hanging space. Please bring the male side (hoop side) of Velcro to adhere your poster to the display board. For more information, please refer to this storyboard handbook.

The 2013 Storyboard Display will be located just off of the Exhibit Hall in Cypress 1.
