The NFCA would like to invite members and industry professionals to submit a proposal to be considered as a speaker at the 2018 NFCA Annual Convention. All proposals and suggestions will be considered for inclusion on the convention education schedule. You may also suggest a speaker or topic you feel would be a valuable addition to the convention program. 

Speakers are solicited and chosen by NFCA Board and Committee Members beginning in the late spring. It is the goal of the NFCA to have all speakers solidified by mid-July each year.
