Deadline: Fri., October 6, 2023 

There are two opportunities two contribute to the conference content:

1. Apply to be a presenter.

Before submitting your application, please review the speaker information/guidelines and the required speaker terms.
Our review committee is seeking speakers on the following topics:

  • Communications and Public Relations
  • Creative and Content
  • Digital Marketing and Advertising
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
  • Emerging Technology and Innovations

2. Panel Discussions

We may also chose to host panel discussions at the annual conference. These are valuable opportunities to discuss important matters in the field by featuring Q&A with a small group of experts in a conversation around a specific topic.

Do you have an idea for a panel discussion? Let us know using the panel ideas submission form.
Please note:

  • MASHSMD is not a pay-to-speak event, nor do we cover speaker fees/travel expenses.
  • Membership in the Society is not required to submit a panel discussion topic or application to be a presenter.
  • All submissions will be reviewed, and those not selected for the annual conference may be contacted for a virtual webinar.
