What's in it for you?

  • Share your expertise and reach a wide audience of IT and ET professionals
  • Gain experience as a presenter
What's the format? What should I know?

The Convergence 2024 Program will be broken down into 45 minute slots. 
  • Choose either a 20 minute, 30 minute, or 45 minute session to share your knowledge
  • Consider a 20 or 30 minute session followed up with a 10 to 25 minute discussion of what's happening in our different boards on your topic
