Call for Speakers

Designed for all chamber professionals, ACCE's educational programming challenges participants to mobilize, learn, speak, act, and network. Participants rethink and reenergize their dedication to the chamber profession thanks to the dynamic presenters who provide training seminars to our members. There two speaker opportunities: ACCE Webinars and the ACCE Annual Convention.

ACCE Webinars are live interactive tele-seminars that participants can join from the comfort of their home or office. They are typically hour-long sessions, with 45 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of Q&A, presented via conference call with web particpation. Webinar speakers are not paid.

Webinars are open to members in good standing only. Speakers must provide an electronic format of their presentations at least one week prior to the event and must schedule an orientation meeting with staff the day before your scheduled seminar. Any changes to content or speaker availability must be cleared at least two weeks prior to your seminar.

ACCE's Annual Convention is a three-day event offering an array of high quality educational and networking opportunities to sharpen leadership and management skills. There are two types of speakers for the Annual Convention: breakout session speakers and keynote speakers. Breakout session speakers are not paid. Keynote speakers are paid, but limited in number.
