Deadline Extended to December 13, 2019

ARMA Houston is seeking proposals for the 2020 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 2020 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 2020 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

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 2020 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.
