Call for Workshop Abstracts: 2014 Financial, Operational Management and IT (FOM/IT) Conference
October 27–29, 2014 Las Vegas, Nevada
Deadline: June 2, 2014
We’re Looking for a Few Good Speakers!
The National Association of Community Health Centers has a high standard of excellence and a reputation for presenting quality educational programs. This hands-on, specialized conference provides attendees with diverse educational and training opportunities all geared towards senior and mid-level health center employees. Attendees look for practical solutions for their day-to-day activities. You will be successful if you can provide concrete, turn-key solutions that health center staff can implement when they get back to their office.
If you have an interesting presentation or an idea that could be developed into an educational session, you are invited to submit a written proposal. If selected as a conference speaker, you will gain visibility in the industry and contribute to the advancement of health centers.
NACHC staff will evaluate all proposed presentations based on overall quality, relevance to health centers, practical applications of material, timeliness of the topic and speaker qualifications. To be considered as a speaker, your program must be educational in nature. Sales presentations will not be accepted. Your material should be original; otherwise, sources must be referenced. For multiple speakers, each speaker must agree to this submission. Incomplete program submissions will not be considered. The final program selections will be made and selected presenters notified by mid August.
Programs should be no more than 90 minutes long, including a brief session for questions and answers. Please be prepared to also submit a list of 10 multiple choice or true/false comprehension questions for your session. We will seek continuing education unit accreditation (CEs for Social Workers and CPEs for accountants) for all workshops that are selected. Panels should not consist of more than two panelists and one moderator.
No travel or hotel expenses will be provided to speakers. Speakers/presenters qualify for a $50 discount on registration fees and must register in order to participate beyond their individual session.
