Symposium candidates should email your submission to


The PMINJ Chapter is seeking speakers to present original content related to project management topics for its Symposia, Seminars, IPM day, Workshops, and Monthly meetings. Please consider submitting a presentation within the guidelines detailed below.

Speakers should identify their proposed presentation for an hour to an hour and a half session.  Final presentation lengths will be determined as part of the review process. Your presentation will be reviewed by a panel of PMP volunteers who are seeking to prepare an exciting and varied program that meets the needs of our chapter members.   Selection criteria include: originality, contribution to Project Management, timeliness of the topic, speaker experience and references (YouTube video and client testimonials are highly recommended).  All decisions by the review team will be final.

If your presentation is accepted, you will be asked to confirm your commitment and you will be assigned a speaker angel who will work with you in the months before the event to help you shape your presentation in line with event requirements such as formatting, timing for Q&A, etc. Final copies of presentations are required a month prior to the presentation.  Your finalized presentation is made available to you on a laptop that is set-up for your session. Changes to the presentation will not be accepted after the final submission.

Presentations will be selected by review once we have received your presentation and the following supporting submittal materials.  To be considered, all submissions need to be received electronically by the submission deadline.    Incomplete submissions will not be reviewed.
