Submission form and deadline
Our new call for speakers application is easier than ever to navigate and submit. Please complete the form and submit it to us no later than end of day Monday, February 3, 2020. Please be sure to complete all the fields. Leaving the form open for a lengthy period may cause it to "time out," so you may wish to draft your submission in a separate word document and paste it into the appropriate fields to ensure proper transmission. Speakers are welcome to submit more than one session, but must fill out a separate form for each submission.
NAHRI will waive admission fees to the 2020 Revenue Integrity Symposium for all selected speakers and co-speakers. Conference sessions are typically one hour in length and selected presenters will be expected to submit PowerPoint materials at a later date.
We look forward to hearing from you! If you'd like more information or wish to discuss a speaking topic, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
