Call For Proposals - CMA Conference 2011 (Las Vegas)

The Career Management Alliance is looking for speakers for their 2011 Conference, Thursday and Friday, April 7th & 8th, 2011 at the Riviera Hotel & Casino - Las Vegas, NV.

Theme: Serving Clients - Solving Challenges
* New Ideas for Challenging Times
* Preparing for Continuous Change
* Focus on Compelling Storytelling

The annual gathering of the Career Management Alliance brings together career
practitioners from all sectors of the industry -- private practice resume writers
and coaches, college and university career counselors, government and military
career specialists, and more. All of us are facing the challenges of today's
economic climate and tomorrow's uncertain outlook.

They are looking for sessions that face these issues squarely and provide tangible
resources and inspiring ideas for everyone who serves the jobseeker of today and
tomorrow. What tools and techniques do we need to navigate the future? What
systems and strategies will lead to success? And how do we tell our stories so
that we stand out from the crowd and get noticed.

The proposal deadline for the April Conference is September 24th, 2010

  • high res JPEG file - Needed after the proposal has been accepted)

Presentation Structure Guideline:
With the attendee in mind, your presentation should be educational, as
"hands-on" as possible and include real-world examples and ideas that will help
attendees to implement new and proven procedures, solve problems, make their
clients successful, grow their businesses, and feel excited and inspired. We are
fortunate to have a strong representation of military transition specialists in
the audience who work with retiring and separating service members and their
spouses. Please include examples that are relevant to them as well as other
client groups.
