Speaker Policy



Presentation Selection:

All presentation proposals received on or before date December 1, 2018, will be determined on appropriateness and interest of topic, level of content, comprehensiveness of session objectives and expertise of presenter.

Requested honoraria are not guaranteed and will be confirmed directly by NAHU’s national office executive personnel, who will work with speakers to finalize contract agreements.

Templates for your presentation with the NAHU brand will be provided by our office.
