You are encouraged to design your presentation to be as interactive as possible. Consider:
While ISPE is a professional society whose education content comes from its volunteers, as volunteers, still the information presented comes under the auspices of intellectual property. It is incumbent upon the Society to recognize the importance of the sharing of this intellectual property and to handle it in accordance with a written agreement.
The agreement is thus designed to protect both ISPE as it makes information available to its Members and registrants, as well as to protect the volunteer.
If your company has questions regarding elements of the agreement, please have them contact the Director of Continuing Education, Marianne Bock.
All speakers, except regulatory and keynote speakers are asked to register themselves via the conference web site.
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.
ISPE is very interested in its Members' ideas for education programming publications, and other knowledge resources, and wishes to invite Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to fully participate in their development.
