A two-hour presentation allows for one 50% conference registration discount (discount code will be sent to speakers after receiving Speaker Agreement signed document). CIMs will be able to register at the special rate of $350.00 USD between January 30, 2015 up to May 29, 2015. Longer sessions allow for one complimentary registration. Where there is more than one speaker scheduled for the same session, the registration discount may be divided between the speakers. However, each speaker must register.
Keynote speaker honorarium will be defined upon receipt of application.
Cancellations must be received at AICI Headquarters in writing before July 20, 2015. Your registration fee will be

2015 Session Schedule
AICI Conference attendees have a choice of four concurrent sessions scheduled at the same time. There is no pre-registration required for these sessions. Speakers should be prepared to speak to a group of up to 75-90 people at Concurrent Sessions. Concurrent sessions are two hours without any breaks.
General Sessions & Keynote Speaker
AICI authorizes AICI Continuing Education Units (AICI CEUs) using rigorous educational standards. All speakers applying for concurrent sessions must have their sessions authorized for CEUs. Sessions will be CEU’d through AICI’s CEU Administrator, and the CEU Appraiser will determine whether each speaker has met the criteria to present at the AICI Conference.
Important: What We Don’t Want
If an attendee were to ask “how do I implement this approach in my own business?”, and the answer is “you have to hire the presenter,” that presentation would NOT be appropriate for this conference.
Presentations that only provide theoretical content without specific practical application knowledge.
Speakers are reminded that all sessions are intended for educational purposes and to refrain from any promotion and sales of your products and services during the session presentation. We invite you to consider taking an exhibition booth during the AICI Conference where we offer ample opportunities for exhibitors to promote their products and services.
