Speaker Submission Information
This form is for anyone who would like to be considered as a possible presenter for the 2020 PMI Mid-South Regional Professional Development Day (PDD/Symposium) or the PMI Nashville monthly luncheons. There is also an option to share your submission with participating mid-south chapters for possible future events.
The 2020 Mid-South Professional Development Day is a regional effort in which PMI chapters from Memphis, Nashville, Chattanooga, Central Mississippi, Northern Alabama, and South Alabama are collaborating on a fall virtual event to be held September 15-17, 2020. Recordings of the sessions will be available to registered attendees for viewing on demand after the live event. More details will be announced as they are finalized in the coming weeks.
The call for speakers for the 2020 PMI Mid-South Regional PDD has been extended and now closes at midnight on Friday July 31, 2020 (Central Time). We expect to notify speakers in early/mid August via email about which presentations are accepted.
Please note that we are only accepting submissions for UNPAID presentations at this time. If accepted, the speaker will receive one (1) free registration to the full event for which the submission was made, and the speaker can claim PDUs/CCRs for both the presentation duration itself (1 hour) and the time to create the content. PDU category limits may apply, so please refer to the PMI CCR Handbook at
Each session for unpaid speakers will be 1 hour/60 minutes in duration. Plan to allow 10 minutes of questions (and introduction time) when building your presentation. We expect most of our attendees to have some PMI certification/credential already, so preference will be given to more intermediate and advanced topics (versus introduction to project management principles). For events with multiple sessions, the selection of presentations will be balanced across the Talent Triangle Categories (Leadership, Technical Project Management, and Strategic & Business Management).
Speakers may submit up to 2 separate topics for consideration per event, but please fill the form out completely for EACH topic submission.
Selected speakers may be required to sign a speaking engagement form committing to the presentation and guidelines for the virtual event. This will define the expectations for both speaker and chapters. If required, a copy of the agreement will be provided upon notification of acceptance as a speaker.
