CNU 19 Call for Input

Call for Input

The CNU 19 Call for Input is now closed.Through our exciting new IdeaScale platform, CNU members were able to make their voices heard on the direction and content of CNU 19 in Madison, WI. Our interactive forum allowed members and allies to share their ideas for next year's Congress.

The new interactive forum allowed users to submit ideas for people they would like to see, sessions they would like to attend, and goals they would like the Congress to achieve. With this new platform, CNU seeks to create a transparent and open forum where users share, refine, and receive feedback on ideas.

If you didn't get a chance to submit your input, but have an academic paper you would like to submit, the deadline for academic paper submission is still a few months away on December 3, 2010. We invite you to take a look at past papers and learn more about the process.

A special thank you to all of those who took the time to submit ideas and provide comments and votes. Your ideas will help make CNU 19 in Madison a great success.

Where do we go from here? The program committee will take your ideas, comments, and votes and move on to the next phase: selecting ideas for the Congress. This process will wrap up at the end of November, and everyone who submitted ideas should receive a response by then. Please note, although this website will remain live for you to view, ideas are no longer being recorded for consideration.
You can still view the ideas at!
