  • How do we request a Regulatory Speaker?

    Regulatory speakers, whether you know the name of the person you wish to be invited, or whether you just have a topic on which you will request a regulator to speak, need to be communicated to your conference Program Manager very early in your planning process! You will find a form on the speaker portal to use in submitting your request.

    ISPE works regularly with global regulators and has professional regulatory advisors who are the interface between ISPE (representing it industry members) and regulatory bodies. Once specific requests for speakers are made to the Director of Continuing Education, they are then discussed with the appropriate advisor(s) and through a well-established process, invitations made.

    At no time should any volunteer ISPE planning committee or presenter directly contact any regulator to invite them to participate as a speaker in an ISPE conference.

    However, once a formal invitation has been made - and accepted - ISPE Headquarters will notify program committees and presenters and provide direct contact information so that the regulator may fully participate with the presenting group.

  • I have a new idea, or a new presentation I would like to suggest.

    You can submit your presentation through the conference “Call for Proposals” portal on the ISPE Website Home Page.
