All speakers, exhibitors, and award recipients must register for the conference.
AICP Certification Maintenance

Educational Session, Not a Sales Presentation
This presentation must be educationally focused, non-competitive, and presented without commercial bias. No speaker may use a conference session as an opportunity for a commercial sales pitch, self-promotion or unwarranted criticism of a competitor. Presentations should promote the educational advancement and professional development of conference attendees.
MAP maintains a standard of excellence for speakers. We expect your presentation to meet our standard of 4.0 out of 5.0 on the evaluation scale that includes instructor effectiveness, engaging the audience, and meeting learning objectives.
