Scholars who are invited to present their work at a national convention of the College Theology Society must be current members of the CTS no later than April 1, 2017 in order to appear in the program.  No person may submit more than one proposal for consideration and nor will submissions to multiple sections be considered.  Failure to observe these policies may result in the scholar's disqualification to present a paper at the Annual Convention.
