5 Simple Steps to Complete a Breakfast Roundtable (BRT) Discussion Submission


Step 1: Read policies and guidelines

See UAA’s 2 Rules and Important Policies page

Proposal Submission Guidelines

  1. Description of a Breakfast Roundtable (BRT) Discussion
    • A breakfast roundtable is an informal discussion of a topic during breakfast. The discussion is led by one or more persons, but open to anyone who wishes to join in and share his or her views. Leading a roundtable is a good way to meet people who share your interests.
    • Do NOT use the BRT option if you want to conduct a formal discussion with selected speakers. The formal alternative is a Colloquy session.
    • Because breakfast roundtables take place in the general dining area, the use of audio-visual aids and equipment (other than a battery-operated laptop computer) is not possible.
  2. Due to UAA’s “one-session rule,” you should verify that each speaker has not agreed to participate in another session.
    • Any person who has been given a waiver from the “one-session rule” will have written verification of their exemption. Multiple session commitments violate the “one-session rule”, and can result in forced withdrawals from your colloquy.
  3. You must submit your proposal using the UAA online submission system. Email submissions are not allowed and will not be reviewed.
  4. View sample BRT description.
    • Your BRT description should state the primary subject that will be discussed. Subtopics or specific questions may help to stimulate interest.
    • View a sample breakfast roundtable description for guidance in constructing an acceptable BRT description.

  • Once the proposal has been submitted, a confirmation email will be sent to the breakfast roundtable organizer. This email verifies that the proposal was successfully submitted. Please save this confirmation receipt, as it is the only proof that the submission was received.
  • If a confirmation email is not received, please check junk/spam mailbox for a possible misdirected confirmation message. If you still do not see a confirmation message, please contact us at conf@uaamail.org.
