    Call for Presentations 

    CASB invites presenters to submit current, original content proposals for its 78th Annual Convention, which is to be held at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs December 6 - 9, 2018. We are looking for dynamic speakers that engage their audience with relevant topics. We are interested in innovative formats to deliver content such as Ted-type talks, open discussions and panels. Please let us know if you would be willing to present the same topic multiple times during the convention. 

    The 2018 convention theme is Govern-Advocate-Lead: A Vision for the Future! 

    CASB seeks to educate attendees and not promote any specific product. Exhibit booth space is available for all promotional activity. Only presentations that are product-neutral will be considered.

    Presentation selections are made based on desired topics, the flow of content, educational value and understanding of the content.

    The deadline to submit presentations is August 10th, 2018.
