The Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association Annual Conference
Call for Proposals

The EAGALA Annual Conference is a networking and educational event for professionals who are practicing or just newly interested in equine-assisted psychotherapy and personal development. Our conference is specific to the EAGALA Model approach.

Conference presenters need to be EAGALA Certified professionals with experience in a specific topic area to share. Other topics may be considered by non-certified professionals depending on the subject matter and relevance to the practice of EAGALA work. Topics may include those specific to actual practice (such as special populations, facilitation skills, ethics, research, theoretical foundations, etc.) or to benefit our members in starting and building successful businesses (such as marketing, business start-up, etc.)

Presenters do not receive any stipend, but do attend the conference at a discounted rate of $300 per person (this applies for up to 2 presenters per workshop). Presenters need to be willing to sign a release allowing EAGALA to tape (video or audio) their presentations which may be sold through EAGALA as part of the conference series.
