Speaker proposals are evaluated objectively with emphasis on the following criteria listed in order of significance:

  • Degree to which the proposed session meets the conference/program objectives
  • Desirability of the topic
  • Speaker's presentation skills and experience

Proposals to present must contain and convey sufficient detail to allow ASSP's Conference Planning Committee to understand how the proposed session will contribute to the conference objectives.  Selection is competitive, so you must submit a compelling and complete proposal.

No more than two proposals from one speaker will be considered. Please complete a separate application for each proposal.  Incomplete  submissions will not be considered.
