Conference Planning Committee

Conference PlanningWorking in conjunction with EGSA staff and the Board of Directors, the Committee develops all content and themes for the Association’s conferences and editorial content for Powerline magazine. The Committee hosts EGSA members, speakers and guests for the spring and fall conferences, and fulfills conference emcee duties by providing welcoming comments, introductions, announcements, timekeeping and managing the general flow of the conference.

The Committee solicits, reviews and approves all speakers, speaker resumés and presentation content. During each conference, the Committee also surveys attendees and then reviews and compiles respondents’ comments and rankings to determine the effectiveness of the conference agenda and the direction of future conferences.
