The NAPCP is seeking speaking proposals for topics that will appeal to individuals from all experience levels and industry sectors, including Corporate, Government and Higher Education. Conference attendees are made up of (1) end-user "practitioners" who administer Commercial Card and Travel Card programs and (2) industry providers (issuers, networks, acquirers, consultants, software providers) who develop and support technology and solutions in the electronic payments arena.
Suggested speaking topics include best practices for managing fraud, controls and audit; global payments; legal and regulatory issues; program expansion; provider relations; merchant services; emerging payment technologies and more. Each year, attendees also look forward to presentations from experts that address industry trends and benchmarking. Please see the list of session topics at http://www.napcp.org/Speakers. A complimentary webinar hosted by the NAPCP on September 12 (2:00 p.m. Eastern) will discuss the Call for Presenters process and guidelines.
The conference offers a variety of educational formats that appeal to every learning style: formal classroom-style presentations with Q&A; hot topic discussions for an open exchange of ideas; product and technology demonstrations from leading providers; and more intimate roundtable discussion sessions. The speaker selection process includes proposal review, telephone interview and discussion of key takeaways for the presentation topic. Approved speakers will receive a complimentary conference registration pass and credit toward the Certified Purchasing Card Professional (CPCP) credential.
