The 2020 Mid-South Professional Development Day is a virtual event to be held September 15-17, 2020. The theme for the event is "Business Agility, Resiliency, and Bouncing Back." We expect to provide a total of 15 PDU/CCR hours for attendees across the 3 days. Recordings of the sessions will be available to all registered attendees for viewing on demand after the live event. More details will be announced as they are finalized in the coming weeks.
The call for speakers closes at midnight on Friday July 24, 2020 (Central Time). We expect to notify speakers in early/mid August via email about which presentations are accepted. If a speaker is accepted, the speaker will receive one (1) free registration to the full event (all 3 days), and the speaker can claim PDUs/CCRs for both the presentation duration itself (1 hour) and the time to create the content. PDU/CCR category limits may apply, so please refer to the PMI CCR Handbook at https://www.pmi.org/-/media/pmi/documents/public/pdf/certifications/ccr-certification-requirements-handbook.pdf.
Each session for unpaid speakers will be 1 hour/60 minutes in duration. Please allow for 10 minutes of questions, introduction/bio, and general getting started time when building your presentation (so plan on 50 minutes of actual presentation). The selection of presentations will be balanced across the Talent Triangle Categories (Leadership, Technical Project Management, and Strategic & Business Management). Speakers may submit up to 2 separate topics for consideration per event, but please fill the form out completely for EACH topic submission.
