Symposium Speaker and Topic Proposals Guidelines

General Guidelines

  • Diversity is valued.IAHA and the Symposium Committee value and seek diverse and inclusive participation within the Association and share a commitment to have speakers represent a broad cross-section of gender, race, ethnicity, creed, age, sexual orientation, gender identify and expression, national origin, and disability. Please consider how you can structure your proposal in order to contribute to the diversity of the Symposium program.
  • Different perspectives matter.Great topics often include speakers from different backgrounds – private attorneys, in-house counsel, government, consumers, providers, senior and junior speakers.Please consider how you can incorporate different views in the submitted topic.
  • Limitations on Speakers from the Same Firm/Organization.We prefer that one session not have more than one speaker from the same firm/organization.
  • Include accurate information.If selected as a speaker, the information you provide in your proposal will be used in the Symposium program brochure.Please be sure the spelling is correct and all relevant titles and credentials are included.
  • Expectations if Selected.Symposium speakers are expected to provide a current, practical, and quality oral presentation.Practical take-away advice and guidance (e.g., sample contract language, draft policies, or checklist) by speakers is highly valued.In addition, speaker’s materials must be reviewed for CLE purposes and CLE credit will not be granted if these materials do not meet certain requirements.

Selection Process

  • The members of the Symposium Committee are highly qualified experts and review and select the Symposium speaker proposals.
  • It is important to submit a proposal prior to the due date to ensure your proposal is included in the materials that the Symposium Committee will review. Late submissions may not be reviewed.
  • The Symposium Committee strives to plan a high quality, practical program that meets the educational needs of IAHA’s members.Faculty who are selected will be contacted by a member of the Symposium Committee.Those who are not selected will hear from a member of the Symposium Committee after the Symposium program agenda is finalized.This could be several months from the proposal due date.Your patience during the planning process is appreciated.
