Keynote Sessions NAPNAP accepts applications for KEYNOTE sessions (large sessions meant for the entire conference audience, usually inspirational, humorous, of futuristic) via an online application query process. Unfortunately, queries that come through e-mail or promotional mailings cannot be reviewed. Generic ("canned") topics that do not address the NAPNAP membership specifically are not considered. All applications received are reviewed and remain on file for three years.
NAPNAP's Conference Planning Committee considers the following factors when selecting general session/keynote speakers:
appeal to the NAPNAP audience
relevance to NAPNAP member's learning needs
fit with the conference theme
speaker's ability to attract attendees
speaker's location/potential travel costs
All potential General Session speakers will be reviewed by NAPNAP's Conference Planning Committee annually. Decisions are made annually by August 1st, and only invited speakers will receive notification.
