We invite you to share your knowledge and expertise at the 41st annual – 2022 GOVIT Symposium! Fusion Learning Partners is requesting presentation proposals for in-person and virtual sessions in a wide range of topic areas.

Please review the Call for Speakers Outline carefully before submitting your proposal.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 5:00pm CST on Thursday, July 28th, 2022

Proposals that are incomplete or received after the deadline are accepted by invitation only.

*Vendor neutral sessions are educational in nature and do not focus on or promote a particular platform, software, system, product or service. If you are a vendor and want to ensure a speaking opportunity, there are a limited number of sponsorship opportunities available that guarantee you a session.
