We invite you to submit a proposal to present at the 25th Annual NASBITE International Conference. Proposed presentations should address the conference theme, 25 years of Advancing International Trade, in the areas of Business Outreach, Trade Skills, International Education, Technology and Innovation, CGBP, and the needs and interests of our various membership constituencies.
The NASBITE International Board of Governors is pleased to issue a call for presenters for our 25th Annual Conference to be held at the Nines Hotel in Portland, Oregon April 18th-20th, 2011.
NASBITE International is a professional organization for the global business community. Our members include global business educators and trainers at academic institutions; trade specialists at federal, state and local trade assistance organizations; and practitioners that engage in or facilitate global business activity. Our mission is to advance the practice of global business. Part of that mission involves coordinating and administering the Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) credential.
As part of our continuing efforts to promote the exchange of information and resources among global business education and assistance professionals, we sponsor our annual conference, which is known for its high “take away” value and camaraderie. Our Portland conference will include outstanding key note presentations, dozens of break out sessions on a variety of topics of interest to our various membership constituencies, networking events, and exhibitors demonstrating the latest tools and technology.
In crafting your presentation proposal, we encourage you to consider both our conference theme as well as the needs and interests of our various membership constituencies, including service providers, international trade and business development centers, faculty at two and four year colleges, as well as practitioners.
Proposed presentations will be evaluated on how helpful and practical the presentation will be to our audience. The presentation hour can go quickly. Don’t spend time with your background or information about your program or institution. Get right to the practical information that people can use, and make sure to leave time for audience questions and interaction. Be Dynamic!
Please read the instructions carefully. Complete and submit the application form electronically.
Applications are due by November 30, 2011.
