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.

Take a look at the 2014 National Forum storyboards here, and review the storyboard handbook here​.

​The deadline for submitting storyboards was October 1, 2014 at 5 PM ET.

This year, the Storyboard Reception will take place on Tuesday, December 9 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.

Storyboards will be mounted on 3 foot x 5 foot panel boards. The usable posting space is the full 3 feet wide x 5 feet high.
