Call for proposals: Macomb Food Momentum Conference

Reminder that session proposals are due on December 17th!


Macomb Food Momentum Conference Call for Session Proposals


The Macomb Food Collaborative is now accepting session proposals for the 2019 Macomb Food Momentum Conference being held on March 22nd from 8am - 4pm at the Family Resource Center in Mount Clemens.


Speaker search:

The 2019 conference theme is Macomb Food Momentum (previously this event was called All About Food: From Farm to Fork). We seek conference speakers who can offer engaging sessions to illustrate growth, change, transitions or needs to be addressed in our food system. There will be two types of sessions offered at this year's event:

  1. Presentation. A 60 minute presentation related to the theme, which should be engaging and participatory. Panels are acceptable. Hands-on activities are encouraged, but not required.
  2. Facilitated discussion. A 60 minute session that will focus on a particular need or gap to be addressed in the local food system, facilitating solutions-based discussion. The intent is that participants will leave with actionable items from these sessions. Applicants are encouraged to apply in a team of two or more. The conference planning team can assist with recruiting interested and active participants for these sessions.


Complete the online submission form no later than COB December 17th, 2018. You will be notified regarding selection in early January.

For more information, email the Macomb Food Momentum Conference co-Chairs, Kaitlin Koch Wojciak, at, Nicole Urban at or Carolyn Thomas at Be sure to also connect with us at or on social media, on facebook and on Twitter at @macombfood.
