CALL FOR SPEAKERS - Professional Development Meetings & Seminars


We are now planning next year’s programs and invite you to submit an abstract to be a speaker [...}.

We have a need for qualified speakers to present on relevant supply chain and operations management topics for both PDM’s (Professional Development Meetings)

This APICS chapter boasts some of the brightest & most talented manufacturing professionals in the country—and we would like to hear from you! If you are outside of the Raleigh Durham area and would like to present, we would like to hear from you as well.

Here’s what we require from you:

  1. 75 to 100-word abstract that describes your talk.
  2. Three learning objectives for the attendees
  3. 75 to 100-word bio that describes your background and experiences.
  4. Presentation or seminar title.
  5. Two references (names and contact information) who have heard this presentation before or have had the opportunity to hear you deliver presentations in the past two (2) years. (is this necessary?)
  6. Your full contact information (including e-mail address and phone number).

If selected to present at an APICS event, we will also need a low resolution (300 dpi) digital photograph of you AND a copy of the presentation—as you plan to deliver it—two (2) weeks prior to the engagement.

Topic Guidelines

We like topics that cover both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ skills that are highly relevant to those working in manufacturing operations, supply chain management, and inventory management. We look for a good mix of topics that contribute to professional and personal growth. This is NOT an opportunity to promote your products or services. We are open to case studies, panel discussions, pre-dinner meetings, roundtables, and standard lecture formats. Share your knowledge with your peers, showcase your employer, and grow! We want to hear from you!

Note: The APICS Triangle does not endorse or promote products or services.

Please submit your abstract and required information to [email protected].


Thank you!
