Submissions Being Accepted for VSPDT Conference Presenters

We are planning a dynamic VSPDT conference for all team members in Atlanta from September 13-15 this year, and we need your help!

As of now, the general schedule will include outside speakers (Dr. Marty Becker, Gina Phairas from DogTec, Jennifer Arnold from Canine Assistants, etc), talks from Victoria, roundtable panels among VSPDT members, and plenty of chances for socialization and casually structured group discussions.

We’re also saving some presentation slots for VSPDT members who would like to present at the conference and are currently accepting member submissions. If you have a topic you’d like to share with fellow team members during the conference, please provide us with a submission document no later than June 10th via email to [email protected] with the text ‘VSPDT Conference Speaker Submission’ in the subject line.

All submissions should be sent as Word document attachments and include the following:

  • Your name
  • Topic title
  • Presentation overview blurb (one paragraph stating what the talk will be about and generally what it will cover)
  • Presentation notes (for inclusion in the VSPDT Conference materials)
  • Technical requirements (Powerpoint, interactive qualities, whether live dogs are needed, etc)
  • Desired length of time slot

All presentations will be followed by a discussion period. The conference will take place primarily at the Canine Assistants campus in Milton, GA (45 minutes north of Atlanta).

Depending on the number of submissions, we may not be able to accommodate all those who would like time slots at this year’s conference. Our goal is to notify all potential presenters of the speaker roster by mid-July. In order to keep overall costs down for all those attending the conference, we are unable to provide financial compensation for speakers this year.

If you have any questions about this opportunity or the conference in general, please don’t hesitate to contact us anytime. Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from you!
