Call for Presentations

COAA Submission Guidelines

  •  COAA is accepting submissions for our 2020 VIRTUAL Fall Owners Leadership Conference, November 12-13.
  •  Submissions are due by Friday, July 17.
  •  Presentations should be 30-45 minutes in length, including at least 10 minutes of audience interaction / Q & A.
  •  COAA's educational programs are largely peer-to-peer experiences, so at least one Owner shall be part of the presentation team.
  •  Preference will be given to proposals that account for the virtual medium by incorporating ways & means to interact with the audience, including multimedia content, minimizing the volume of per-slide information, leveraging polling, etc.
  •  While non-Owner service providers are welcome to submit and present topics, presentations may not promote products or services. 
  •  To allow time for volunteers, staff, and legal counsel to review the content – and for presenters to incorporate changes – the FINAL version of slide decks and other materials (e.g., handouts) are due no later than October 30.
  •  All speakers must sign COAA's standard Speaker Agreement and provide a short biography and head shot photo.
  •  Speakers shall participate in a mandatory technical review/rehearsal with COAA and our event producer.
  •  Speakers are strongly encouraged to attend the virtual conference and are eligible for complimentary or discounted rates as follows:

     - Owner presenters will receive complimentary registration
     - Non-Owner presenters who work for COAA Partner firms will receive complimentary registration
     - Other non-Owner presenters will be able to register at the Owner member rate

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact COAA's Meetings Manager
