Each year ANPD holds a Star Search competition at our Annual Convention. The purpose of Star Search is to encourage aspiring speakers to compete for an opportunity to present a concurrent session at the next annual convention. Star Search is a great opportunity for novice speakers to develop their professional skills.
The call for Star Search participants is now open!
Four convention attendees will be selected to participate in Star Search on Thursday, July 20 from 4:45 – 5:45 PM. Each participant has 10 minutes to give a brief presentation that is judged by members of the ANPD Convention Content Planning Committee (CPC) and the audience. The CPC score constitutes 75% of the total score and the audience score constitutes 25% of the total. The participant who receives the highest score is invited to present a 60-minute concurrent session at the 2018 Annual Convention and receives one complimentary convention registration.
