Thank you for your interest in speaking at one of the NCEO's 2017 events. We are accepting proposals to speak at the Annual Conference, the new Fall Forum, and our webinars.  Our events provide an unparalleled educational opportunity for the employee ownership community. Please note that NCEO events are always educational and never sales oriented. Would you like more visibility at our events? Consider being a sponsor.

Please scroll down to select the meeting(s) where you would like to speak. We thank you for offering to share your experience and expertise.


Annual Conference: Contact Deborah Krant at dkrant@nceo.org
Seminars and Webinars: Contact Colleen Kearney at ckearney@nceo.org

How to submit a proposal:

Click the "Submit" button below next to the meeting you would like to propose to speak at. If you are not logged into the online submissions website, Submittable, you will be prompted to log in or to create an account. It takes only a minute to create a Submittable account; you only need to do this once. This is an account with Submittable, the company that created the speaker submission software. It is NOT the same as your membership account with the NCEO.  If you save your proposal as a draft in order to edit it, you must return and submit it for review by the NCEO.


How to view saved drafts:

Submittable will not save multiple drafts for a single meeting.  You must complete and submit your first proposal if you want to start a draft of a second proposal. This is only relevant for Annual Conference proposals; you will only need to submit one proposal for the Fall Forum or Webinars. You must officially submit a proposal for NCEO review, we will not be able to view drafts.

Option 1- Click on the meeting below that you have a saved draft for. Your draft will appear on the next screen.

Option 2- Click on your name at the top right corner of your screen, then click "My Profile".  The proposal(s) that you have completed and submitted will appear on the next screen. Click "Saved Drafts" to view and edit your drafts.


How to view completed proposals:

Click on your name at the top right corner of your screen, then click "My Submissions".  The proposal(s) that you have completed and submitted will appear on the next screen. This will show all of your submissions, including those from the 2016 Annual Conference.


How to submit multiple proposals for the same meeting (relevant for Annual Conference only):

Each proposal must be officially completed and submitted before you can start a new proposal.  Submittable will not save multiple drafts at one time for a single meeting.  You must complete and submit your first proposal if you want to start a draft of a second proposal.

The Fall ESOP Forum is the combination of our S Corporation ESOPs Seminar, The ESOP Symposium, and the Get The Most Out of Your ESOP meetings. Our goal is to improve the seminar experience for both attendees and service providers by reducing travel costs and increasing both topic choices and networking possibilities at this new, more intimate alternative to the Annual Conference. We expect to have approximately 225 attendees as a result of the merging of the meetings. The Fall Forum will be a ideal setting for those who want more one-on-one interaction, but also value a wide breadth of educational topics and areas of expertise.
