The PRIA Annual Conference Committee is looking for short proposals for a Soapbox session.
A soapbox is a raised platform on which one stands to make an impromptu speech. The term originates from the days when speakers would elevate themselves by standing on a wooden crate originally used for shipment of soap or other dry goods from a manufacturer to a retail store.
There will be five, 7-minute time slots followed by a brief Q&A and audience discussion time.
PRIA Conference attendees are invited to submit proposals for this session.
Presentations can be verbal-only, performance-based, or include visual prompts such as PowerPoints/short films. Soapbox presentations do not have to relate to the conference theme, but should be topics of importance to the property records industry.
Soapbox presentations will take place on Thursday, September 1, from 10:10-11 a.m., ET, as part of a breakout session.
The deadline to submit a proposal is Friday, July 8.
Proposals will be shared anonymously for a vote by the PRIA audience the week of July 11.
Speakers for selected proposals will be notified the week of July 22, prior to the early bird deadline on Friday, July 29.
