The Call for Presentations for the ALTA Business Strategies Conference takes place in the fall.
Who Reviews the Proposals
Educational content is developed using the proposals in combination with guidance from leadership and volunteers. All proposals are reviewed by leadership, volunteers, and staff with the intention of forming a well rounded educational program.
Hints for Successful Proposals
Proposals are expected to be company- and product-neutral, educational in focus, and well-formed.
At the Business Strategies Conference, we are looking for hands-on, tactical sessions for day-to-day operations staff.
We would like for sessions to be as interactive as possible. All rooms will be set with round tables providing optimal discussion opportunities.
Complete contact information should be provided for all proposed presenters and panelists.
Presentations are limited to a maximum of four speakers, and no speaker is permitted to be part of more than two accepted proposals.
Carefully consider the mix of speakers and panelists. If you are a vendor, you may want to team up with a customer to propose a case study.
If any part of the content of your proposal is vendor or company specific, you should consider forming a panel with presenters from competitor companies. These types of panel presentations are very popular and have proven to be successful.
Presenters can draft and refine proposals using word processing software and then block and copy the proposed session description into the form.
Content areas and tracks change slightly from year to year, and all are related to title operations. The session tracks for the 2014 conference have not been finalized and will ultimately depend on the submitted proposals. A few track ideas to consider are:
Information/IT Security and Privacy
Strategy & Marketing
Speakers (including presenters, co-presenters, moderators, and panelists) are eligible for the following benefits:
One night's accommodation (room and tax only) in the meeting hotel
