The NASBITE International Board of Governors is pleased to issue a call for presenters for our 29th Annual Conference to be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Newport, Rhode Island, April 4-8, 2016.
Call Deadline: November 30, 2015
As part of our continuing efforts to promote the exchange of information and resources among global business education and assistance professionals, we sponsor our annual conference, which is known for its high "take away” value and camaraderie. Our Memphis conference will include outstanding key note presentations, dozens of breakout sessions on a variety of topics of interest to our various membership constituencies, networking events, and exhibitors demonstrating the latest tools and technology.
In crafting your presentation proposal, we encourage you to consider both our conference theme as well as the needs and interests of our various membership constituencies, including service providers, international trade and business development centers, faculty at two and four year colleges, as well as practitioners.
Proposed presentations will be evaluated on how helpful and practical the presentation will be to our audience. The presentation hour can go quickly. Don’t spend time with your background or information about your program or institution. Get right to the practical information that people can use, and make sure to leave time for audience questions and
interaction. Be Dynamic!
