Meeting Professionals International New England Chapter (MPI/NE) invites you to submit your ideas and speaker presentations for our 2019 Educational Institute, November 25th and 26th at the Boston Park Plaza.

Our Institute sessions are to be no more than 60 minutes and should be complete learning experiences with specific outcomes and learning objectives.  We are open to proposals from individuals, collectives, and industry partners.  Our members are particularly interested in sessions that engage attendees in unique ways and are creative twists that are more than just the standard presenter/PowerPoint model.  We have found that our most popular sessions take the form of:

  • Facilitated Discussions—present an issue or trend as a conversation among experts followed by Q&A.
  • Case Studies—describe a program or project in‐depth, focusing on innovative solutions to clearly defined challenges and their implications for the field.
  • Skill‐Building and Hands‐On Learning Experiences—encourage participants to use professional skills to explore a scenario and to teach and learn new tactics.
  • Experiential—introduce participants to a topic or issue through a creative presentation followed by feedback, discussion, and questions.

Please note that submitting a session idea or speaker does not mean that session will be selected for the Institute. The Institute Committee will review submissions and speakers will be contacted within two weeks of the submission deadline. If two session proposals are similar, presenters may be contacted to determine if they will be willing to collaborate on the session. An important note regarding funds: acceptance of your proposal does not obligate MPI/NE beyond assuring you of a meeting space, audio/visual support, and inclusion in the printed program. A small honorarium may be available for select speakers traveling from outside of the New England area. We thank you in advance for helping us continue to build the Fall Educational Institute into the best learning and networking event of the year. You can start the process by clicking the link below to complete the submission form. Please feel free to share this call with any colleagues or speakers you feel may be interested in presenting. Applications will be reviewed in the order they are received. The deadline to submit your ideas and speaker presentations is Monday, September 30, 2019, so do not delay!

Ella Gonzalez, VP of Institute
Hollie Herrick, Director of Institute
