Call for Program Presenters

LAMC seeks presenters for 2020-2021 programs.

Program options include:

  • Half day program (3.5 hours, 8:30 am to 12 pm)
  • Lunch and Learn (90 min, 11:30 to 1 pm)
  • Coffee Talk (90 min, 8 am to 9 am)

Presenters will work with LAMC staff for all program logistics. The presenters should be comfortable with their topic and have experience in public speaking.

Who Should Submit a Proposal?

Anyone who has a topic related to any topic that they want to share with the community. You don’t need a specific credential or job title, just a demonstrable knowledge of your topic and the ability to facilitate for an audience.

What Topic Should I Submit?

The more specific the topic, the better. Think of a workplace, or leadership, problem you solved (or have the tools to solve), and create a lunch-n-learn that explores how you overcame the problem (in a format that inspires others to do the same).

Some ideas for topics are radical honesty, getting outside your comfort zone, mindfulness, professional communication and many more.

You are welcomed to submit multiple proposals and topics. We seek proposals that:

  • Provide skills that help people think differently in terms of their leadership and for leading others
  • Create a learning environment where participants can ask questions to enhance learning
  • Identify key objectives for the program

Most importantly, we are seeking presenters who are interactive with the participants and create an experiential learning environment that enables participants to have a different conversation today, tonight or tomorrow.

What Can I Expect?

Program locations are yet to be determined. You will have access to a laptop, projector, and configurable room. We manage the recruitment, check-in process, and can print your materials.

Expect an audience of 10-30 participants per session.

Proposal Process

Applicants must complete the form by 5:00 p.m. on June 5, 2020.

Proposals will be reviewed finalist selected by the end of July. Applicants may be asked to participate in a brief interview process with the Program Director and members of the Board of Directors Programming Team.

Questions can be directed to Carrie Bale, Executive Direector, Leadership Academy of Madison County at cbale@anderson.edu or 1-765-641-3863.
