The Next Level Purchasing Association (NLPA) is holding its first annual international conference on September 12 & 13, 2013 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Because this is our first conference, we want to make it amazingly good! We want this conference to be so much better than the other conferences of its kind and, to accomplish this goal, we need to have the best procurement speakers on the planet conducting our workshops.
That’s where you may come in!
Yes, we have already carefully hand-picked some of our favorite speakers for the event. But we want to do something that the other associations don’t do…we want to recruit speakers from outside of our network, too.
The associations that I am referencing are content to rely on their “good ole boys” network to rehash the same presentations by the same speakers year after year after year. The NLPA, on the other hand, welcomes diversity of thought and we want to complement our personal choices of speakers with other great speakers, including perhaps some “rising stars” who haven’t yet made a name for themselves in the procurement space but are sure to do so in the near future.
So, if you are interested in showcasing yourself in front of our membership and delivering a one-hour workshop on a procurement topic at our conference, please email me at cdominick (at) nextlevelpurchasing (dot) com and use the subject line “Procurement Conference Speaker.” Just include your name, your title, your company (optional), and the topic you’d like to present. If you sound like a fit, I’ll be in touch.
Please note: to minimize security clearances and to best ensure speaker availability, I have to request that only US citizens apply.
I look forward to hearing from you and, hopefully, showcasing you at the first NLPA conference!
