Speaking Opportunity Inquiry
HRPANO is looking for contributors who are willing to share their expertise without expectation of payment in the spirit of networking, a purpose for which the Association was founded.

There are many benefits in being a HRPANO speaker, including gaining exposure to a wide audience of HR and business decision makers as well as having an opportunity to highlight your expertise and position yourself as an expert among your peers. HRPANO welcomes presentation abstracts from professionals with expertise in any of the various Human Resources disciplines and those who are committed to advancing the HR profession and willing to share best practices. Abstracts must clearly list key takeaways attendees will receive by attending presentations and must avoid promotion and advertising of products and services.

Review and Selection

Abstracts are reviewed and selected by a committee of volunteer professionals according to specific evaluation criteria.

Review criteria include:
  • Overall quality of content;
  • Practical application of material;
  • Evaluations of previous presentations in similar forums (if applicable);
  • Ability to deliver an innovative, effective and stimulating presentation.
Presentation Guidelines
  1. We have a strong preference for single speaker presentations. Co-presentations or panels are strongly discouraged.
  2. Target your proposal and your final presentation to an audience of experienced Human Resources professionals in nonprofit organizations.
  3. Include with your final presentation, either as a handout or as the final slide in your deck, a Suggested Reading List for those who would like to take a deeper dive into the topic and materials you have presented.
