Putting a proposal together is easy and only takes about 30 minutes. Any idea is welcome no matter how big or small.
A few reasons to present:
1. Beef up your professional experience: One of the most apparent benefits of presenting at a regional conference is that it improves your professional clout.
2. Master your discipline: This experience helps you learn even more about a subject area, especially as you try to anticipate audience questions. It's great to be able to share knowledge and expand your knowledge to be able to share at the national level.
3. Become popular with your peers: Who doesn’t want a guaranteed spot at the cool kids’ table? Presenters are able to engage like-minded users from across the region and expand their professional networks all in one sweep.
4. Drive up demand: Beyond a few lines on your resume, presenting at a conference helps assert you as an insider and a force to be reckoned with.
