Welcome!

As you know; selecting speakers is a process. 

   The first step is to identify speakers we feel would be of interest to our conference audience. 

   The second step is to find out the speaker’s level of interest & availability to present a 90-minute session for us.

   The third step, if interested & available, is to find out if you are willing to take your presentation “Beyond the PowerPoint!”  We are looking for speakers who can engage the attendees and give them opportunities to apply knowledge through interactive games, round-table discussions and/or visual demos.

          When attendees are more engaged in the education process and able to relate the information to their own experiences, they are more likely to understand and embrace what is being shared.  In our learning sessions, we want our attendees to work collaboratively to solve problems, share information, and leave with at least one new idea they can implement immediately to better their facility or them personally.

          Submissions must be educational, not promotional.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a proposal!  Decisions will be made starting at our Planning Retreat the end of October.
