Propose a Session or Speaker
Before you propose a speaker or a topic, please read this carefully.
Submissions will be reviewed to ensure that speakers and topics align with PACC’s standards of excellence, allowing us to consistently deliver outstanding programs that are informative, thought-provoking, and offer relevant content that provides genuine value for delegates and sponsors alike.
We actively avoid speakers whose idea of knowledge transfer is to describe product features or relate the contents of their latest annual report. Speakers must commit to maintaining an educational or professional development focus. Attendees don’t invest their time or money to attend a PACC event to hear veiled sales pitches.
Speakers must be available to present at any time during the event.
Plenary and breakout sessions are generally 90 minutes long. Workshops are 3 hours long.
If you’re proposing a panel, be sure it’s not a manel*.
Speakers will be required to agree to participate in practice runs and meet deadlines for submitting session descriptions, audiovisual requirements, and presentation materials. Failing to meet deadlines could result in disqualification.
PACC offers fresh and timely programming at its learning events, so being approved as a speaker at a PACC event does not imply that the speaker will be invited to speak at future events.
PACC waives registration fees for speakers.
Speakers’ colleagues may register at reduced rates.
By agreeing to speak at a PACC event, speakers acknowledge that it is their responsibility to ensure they have the right to use all of the content they will provide, including text and images, and that they have embedded all necessary attributions.
Speakers give PACC the right and option to post, publish, redistribute (online and offline) soft and/or hard copies of their presentations including slides, designs, detailed papers, photos and recorded video, with attribution but no monetary or other tangible compensation.
