ASCD Authors Forum Program
The ASCD Authors Forum program was created exclusively for use by ASCD Affiliates and ASCD Connected Communities to help them promote professional learning opportunities for their geographic areas.
These groups have the opportunity to choose from select ASCD book authors and design events around those authors, such as seminars, book chats, book signings, book clubs, or presentations.
Affiliates are responsible for reimbursing travel, hotel, and meal expenses for authors who participate in the program, but authors receive no consulting fee for their services. All bookings are arranged through ASCD Constituent Services.
Plan an ASCD Authors Forum Event
There are eight steps (PDF) that ASCD and your affiliate need to take to plan an ASCD Authors Forum event.
Be sure to request an author at least six months preceding your event so that we can complete each step.
