The Professional Convention Management Association has introduced an education gateway portal to facilitate submission of session proposals and other ideas. EduGate, as it is called, standardizes and streamlines the submission process. The portal also will serve as a central database for PCMA staff, program committees and chapter leaders to search for vetted and approved education programming. Developed in collaboration with PCMA partner Active Network, the portal also allows tagging, making it easier to tailor searches for specific audiences. In addition, speakers now can be considered for multiyear, multi-event opportunities with just one submission. EduGate is now powering the 2013 Convening Leaders Call for Presentations, which can be found at here.
