Speaking Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in presenting a session at the IRMI Emmett J Vaughan Agribusiness Conference. You'll find details about how to submit your proposal below.

Session Proposal Requirements

To submit a proposal for a session, use the Session Proposal Form.

Session proposals should be submitted using our Session Proposal Form by January 11 to be considered for the 2021 program.

You must complete the form in one session, so make sure you have all of the following required information ready to enter. If you leave the platform and come back later, you will have to start over.

Descriptive Summary
In 75 words or less, state the purpose of the session and summarize what attendees will take away from the session. The summary paragraph will be used to help us market the session.
Session Outline

A separate document for upload that shows in outline format the proposed content of the session is required. Please provide enough detail to allow us to understand the scope and content of the presentation. If the session is selected, we may ask you to add additional details to the outline to meet state requirements for continuing education approval.

Learning Objectives
Provide three learning objectives that summarize what attendees will be able to do with the knowledge they obtain in the session or how it will enable them to do their jobs better.
Indicate the style of the presentation—that is, lecture-style presentation, interactive panel discussion, or another format.
Proposed Time Frame
Our program can accommodate a variety of presentation lengths. Please indicate what you think is an appropriate amount of time to adequately cover the topic.
Target Audience
Indicate the target audience for your presentation based on the skill level and job type of the attendee.

Speaker Information

Provide name, title, and company of proposed speakers, a short biography (in a separate document for upload), and contact information for the speaker proposing the session (the primary speaker). If more than two speakers are being proposed, we ask that you refrain from actually inviting additional speakers until your session is approved.
