Calls for proposals and direct outreach to potential speakers are tried-and-true methods for finding appropriate speakers for education programs. But how do you evaluate your candidates and make the right choices to meet learners’ needs?

In this program, part of a four-part online seminar series created specifically for association employees whose work involves professional development, you’ll discover best practices for screening speaker candidates and selecting outstanding presenters. Learn how to be specific in your call for proposals about what type of voice you are seeking, and explore how to use outside resources, such as written work, previous presentations, and social media activity, to vet potential speakers.

During this virtual program, you’ll have an opportunity to network with colleagues and gather tips and practical tools that you can implement immediately at the office. Register now to:

  • address speaker management concerns through presentations and facilitated chat discussions.
  • gain new knowledge to help you implement best practices for empowering faculty.
  • network with fellow association professionals and professional development subject-matter experts.

This online seminar is a 60-minute live online session that features facilitated audio content and conversations. Before the seminar, registrants will receive login information and links to test their computer and become acquainted with the platform. Participants will have access to the recorded session, reference materials, and more for up to 30 days following the program.

Registration for this online seminar will close Monday, April 30, 2018, at 12:00 p.m. ET.
