What to Expect
The Speaker Committee is responsible for providing shape to Change Management conferences through Track Sessions speakers.
The Committee will meet once to twice a month via teleconference or webinar. The Committee will be provided a clear project outline of tasks and items no later than June 14, 2019. Most tasks will focus around shaping the content of the program – specifically session speakers.
Ideal Speaker Committee volunteers would have a passionate interest in change management education and training and increasing the quality of educational offerings at ACMP Change Management 2020. All volunteers must be ACMP members in good standing. A few committee volunteers should have an interest and established presence on social media in order to help promote the conference and speaker selection and training.
Committee volunteers should anticipate spending about an hour a week in August; an additional 20 – 30 hours of work will be required to review the speaker submissions in September. Following the selection of speakers, the workload of the committee decreases substantially. However, will do another round of reviews in December for Regional Conferences.
Committee members have the option to sign up to be one of the Speaker Liaisons. Those individuals who do sign-on to become Speaker Liaisons will be assigned between 3-5 speakers to work with and review their presentations. This would require an hour introductory/conversation; an hour to review their first draft and provide feedback and an hour to review their final presentation and provide feedback as well as helping to communicate logistics prior to and during the conference and serve onsite to introduce the speakers.
The Committee Chair and/or designate will also sit in on the Conference Committee meetings to provide regular feedback and status updates.
