The NAPCP Annual Commercial Card and Payment Conference is held in a different city each spring (usually April) for three to four days.
The most common speaking role is that of breakout session speaker. Breakout session speakers create and deliver an educational presentation on a P-Card or payments-related topic, allowing time for questions and answers. The NAPCP accepts proposals year-round for Annual Conference speakers. Please complete a separate form for each topic you would like to propose.
The role of session host can be likened to a conference "ambassador." A session host will assist speakers and facilitators as needed, assist with greeting attendees and tracking attendance, time sessions and work with NAPCP staff to address attendee concerns or facility issues.
Roundtable facilitators lead an interactive discussion among table participants on a specific topic for which he/she has expertise; there is no presentation. Facilitators are expected to prepare "discussion questions" in advance.
A webinar speaking role is similar to "in-person" speaking roles, as the speaker must prepare an electronic presentation. Delivery is conducted remotely, which presents a different dynamic than speaking to a live audience. The NAPCP generally offers webinars each month.
