The ILA is seeking peer reviewers to evaluate proposals for its 20th annual global conference taking place in West Palm Beach, Florida, U.S.A, October 2018. Each presentation track offers proposal guidelines and keywords that best represent their interest for this year's conference. Please review these guidelines to determine the track that best matches your expertise, then sign up to review and recommend proposals for that track.

The ILA uses a rigorous 3-step Submission Review Process and various Evaluation Criteria to guide the proposal review process.

Reviewers commit to evaluating a minimum of 10 proposals if volunteering for the Business Leadership, Leadership Development, Leadership Education, Public Leadership, and/or Youth Leadership tracks and 3 proposals if volunteering for the Leadership Scholarship track. Most reviews will entail reading an abstract (~20 minutes) and reviewing it (~20 minutes). Multiply that by 10 proposals for an average volunteer commitment of approximately 7 hours. Submissions with papers attached may require additional time, depending upon the length of the paper. Submissions will be distributed for review by 16 February 2018 and must be completed by 10 March 2018 using the online review system.

Please note: If you volunteer for two tracks (the maximum you may volunteer for) you will be assigned the maximum number of proposals per track, thus doubling your volunteer commitment. If you only wish to review one set of proposals, please select the ONE track you feel you are best suited to review.
