Call for Speakers

ARMA Houston
Annual Spring Conference
April 25-26, 2017
Norris Conference Center - CityCentre
Houston, Texas



ARMA Houston is seeking proposals for the 2017 ARMA Houston Conference. We invite you to partner with us to bring superior quality conference education to our members by submitting proposals which build core skills, share best practices and innovations, and lead the way in industry trends. Your proposal should reassure the ARMA Houston 2017 Program Committee that each breakout session you deliver will provide attendees with takeaways that are immediately useful. This will be the primary focus of the ARMA Houston 2017 Program Committee. Thank you for submitting proposals that are learner-focused and ensure each program is a learning experience with application to the participant's work.

Requested Topic Categories

In order to create a well-rounded conference program and respond to feedback from attendees, ARMA Houston has done a significant amount of pre-planning for the 2017 Spring Conference education program.   The Requested Proposal Topic Categories reflect the feedback we received from our members.  Proposals for topics outside this framework will be considered if the content substantially supports the overall program.

Topic Categories include:

 RIM Basics & Advanced   Legal
 Business/Audit  Management Skills
 Data Science  Privacy
 Information Technology  


Breakout Sessions – Sessions are generally one hour and 15 minutes in length and will run concurrent to three other sessions of a different topic category (track).  Longer sessions will be considered. The conference program committee may shorten and lengthen sessions at their discretion.

Poster Sessions – In addition to the standard Breakout Sessions, we are requesting proposals for 4 15-minute poster sessions that will be held in between the breakout sessions. 

Opening/Lunch Session One opening and one lunch session will be selected, with a length of 45-60 minutes. 

Notification of Proposal Acceptance


Decisions will be communicated by ARMA Houston’s Conference Program Committee no later than January 13, 2017. If a proposal is accepted, speakers will be required to:

  • Submit a final copy of handout materials no later than March 17, 2017
  • Read, agree to, and submit a completed Speaker Agreement Form  
  • Agree NOT to market products/services during sessions (unless a paid vendor session).
