Florida Prosperity Partnership
Tenth Annual Statewide Training Conference
“FPP One-O: Ten Years, One Community”
Wednesday, May 30 – Friday, June 1, 2018
Loews Royal Pacific Hotel at Universal Orlando
The FPP Conference Planning Committee seeks plenary and concurrent session proposals that introduce new ideas and model practices, convey useful strategies, identify lessons learned, and strengthen participants’ existing knowledge and skills.
Preferred consideration will be given to sessions that use a facilitated, interactive approach to the content, sessions where the participants become an active part of the learning through small and large group discussions, skill practice, Q and A sessions, activities and more.
Sessions should include a balance of “air time” between facilitators and participants. This expectation for 2018 is based upon feedback provided from past participants requesting more opportunity to engage and connect with others. FPP believes this can and should occur within concurrent sessions. The facilitator ensures this occurs by doing more than merely “presenting” during the entire session.
Session facilitators are also encouraged to consider developing resources and materials that encourage further participant interaction with questions, fill-in- the-blank items, and white space for note-taking.
Session content that aligns in some way with the FPP Platforms for Prosperity, including where Floridians Live, Learn, Work, Bank, Start Businesses, Get Healthy, Receive Social Services and Worship, will also be given deeper consideration. This may include how services can be integrated into other Platforms, and/or using the Platforms to drive behavioral change.
Finally, session topics that align with the FPP strategic initiatives of a) influencing change in financial behaviors and decision-making; b) promoting generational roles in financial stability; and c) optimizing community-based initiatives and relationship-based products and services, will be given additional attention.
FPP conference sessions will be 60, 75 or possibly 90 minutes long for specific master sessions.
Sessions are ideally led by no more than one to three co-facilitators.
