NAPNAP accepts applications for KEYNOTE sessions (large sessions meant for the entire conference audience, usually inspirational, humorous, or futuristic) via an online application query process. Unfortunately, queries that come through e-mail or promotional mailings cannot be reviewed. Generic ("canned") topics that do not address the NAPNAP membership specifically are not considered. All applications received are reviewed and remain on file for three years. For future NAPNAP Conference dates and locations, click here. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT CLINICAL TOPICS THROUGH THE KEYNOTE APPLICATION PROCESS.
NAPNAP's Conference Planning Committee considers the following factors when selecting keynote speakers:
- appeal to the NAPNAP audience
- relevance to NAPNAP member's learning needs
- fit with the conference theme
- speaker's ability to attract attendees
- speaker fees
- speaker's location/potential travel costs
All potential Keynote Session speakers will be reviewed by NAPNAP's Conference Planning Committee annually. Decisions are made annually by August 1st, and only invited speakers will receive notification. Note: This application site is NOT for intensive workshops or concurrent sessions. Each national conference has a "Call for Abstracts" that takes place approximately 12 months in advance of the conference date.
