NAEYC is in the process of recruiting peer reviewers to help review session proposals for our Professional Learning Institute and for our Annual Conference this year.
Two very important things to note regarding this volunteer activity:
1) Anyone who serves as a peer reviewer and who successfully completes the review of the proposals they are sent (for either Annual or Institute) will receive a complimentary registration for Annual or Institute (or for both, should they choose to be a peer reviewer for both events). This is contingent upon NAEYC receiving reviewed proposals by the deadline communicated.
2) Applicants may select whether they want to review proposals for Annual, Institute or BOTH during the application process. That is not presently clear from the description of the opportunity on this page, but the choice is presented as applicants move through the application online.
More information about this opportunity and a link to the online application may be found at http://www.naeyc.org/getinvolved/proposal-reviewers.
PLEASE NOTE: we apologize for the tight timeline, but all applications must be submitted by January 13 so that we can stay on track with our overall timeline.
The peer review process is highly important in that it ensures high-quality content at NAEYC’s annual professional events. Any NAEYC member may apply to be a proposal reviewer and applications are reviewed for knowledge, experience, and background in conjunction with the knowledge, skills and backgrounds represented by the current pool of NAEYC proposal reviewers. All review work is completed online and communications take place primarily via email.
