Suggestions should be in the format of a brief synopsis and ideas for speakers to talk on that topic, as well as others identified to speak on the same panel, if possible.

You may propose others as speakers and we will contact them should the topic be picked up by our planning committee.  Suggestions may be for plenary sessions or for smaller breakout sessions…

Both speakers will share their unique perspective and insights. Attendees are encouraged to participate in the Q&A session following the presentations.
