Lifesavers Conference soliciting speaker suggestions

Each year the Lifesavers Conference Planning Committee solicits recommendations for speakers from a variety of sources including federal and state agencies, safety organizations, researchers, and previous conference attendees. That process is now underway for the 2015 Lifesavers Conference in Chicago March 15-17, 2015 and will remain open until September 12, 2014. Please consider submitting a proposal!

All speaker suggestions will be carefully reviewed by the Lifesavers Planning Committee. Because this is a competitive process and there are a limited number of workshop slots available, not all suggestions will be selected for inclusion in the 2015 conference line-up. The committee encourages you, however, to submit your proposal, bearing in mind that preference is given to programs that have been evaluated and proven to work. You may also want to assess your program’s potential to be presented as a poster. Like speaker submissions, posters are carefully reviewed and priority given to those programs that include an evaluation component.
