The deadline to recommend Distinguished Speakers for the 2015 Annual Conference in Miami is January 15. Distinguished Speakers should be recognized experts in their field and non-ATA members who have not presented at a previous Annual Conference. Their proposals should be exceptional. Each division may identify one or two potential Distinguished Speakers. Please refer to the Divisions Handbook for details about the nomination process.
