Speaker Callout!

We are no longer accepting speaker proposals for the 2019 conference. To receive the 2020 conference call for presentations in June 2019, please contact Jennifer George at jgeorge@indianachamber.com to be included on the recipient list.

The Indiana Safety and Health Conference will provide a forum for safety, health and environmental (SH&E) professionals to:

  • Identify key issues facing SH&E professionals
  • Expand their knowledge and professional skills
  • Prepare for the challenges in the SH&E fields
  • Engage in the dialog concerning the profession
  • Identify emerging issues relevant to SH&E

The committee is particularly interested in advanced, technically-oriented and practical presentations.

Turning in a presentation abstract does not guarantee you a spot on the agenda. The conference planning committee will decide from the submitted presentations which are appropriate for the 2019 agenda.

  • Presentation skills and experience of the speaker
  • Desirability of the topic to the conference attendees

Successful applicants must comply with all provisions and guidelines outlined on this page and on the CFP form. Proposals to present also must contain sufficient detail to allow the selection committee to understand the learning objectives and how the proposed session will meet those objectives.


Demonstrations/Visual Aids (Breakouts and Workshops)

All use of demonstrations must comply with federal and state safety regulations, as well as the rules and regulations outlined by the conference venue (Indiana Convention Center). Lack of compliance with any safety regulations will disqualify you from speaking at future Indiana Safety and Health Conferences.

All PowerPoint presentations must follow certain stylistic guidelines if they are provided to you by the Indiana Chamber, to include amount of info per slide, size of text, etc. These guidelines will be provided if your presentation is selected.

We will provide up to one night (one room per speaker) at the conference hotel only (Courtyard by Marriott and Springhill Suites by Marriott for 2019) for speakers traveling from outside of central Indiana. All other travel costs incurred are the responsibility of the speaker (subject to change).
