Thematic panels should focus on a unifying theme relevant to the membership of the Community College Interest Group, and ideally pertinent to the 2020 theme. These panels might consist of a chair and individual presenters, and possibly a respondent. Individual presenters might have a short paper or scholarly position they are summarizing. Co-sponsorship with other interest groups is strongly encouraged. Individuals or panels who have a sound idea and want to flesh it out can contact Rob Leonard or Andi Zamora, email information is at the bottom of this call.

· Submissions are due by the time/date as posted on the WSCA website.

Roundtables are designed to create a dialogue between participants and the audience. These panels should be on a relevant topic to the Community College Interest Group, and ideally be pertinent to the 2020 theme. To present a robust discussion, participants of a roundtable will ideally have a diversity of ideas surrounding the topic being discussed.
