Speaker Confirmation Form

GFOA Annual Conference

As a speaker and/or moderator for the Government Finance Officers Association’s (GFOA) annual conference scheduled for June 5-8, 2022 in Austin, Texas, I understand that I must comply with GFOA’s speaker guidelines and requirements, including but not limited to compliance with deadlines, restrictions against marketing material, and GFOA’s conference registration policies. If you have any questions, please contact your GFOA staff coordinator or Caitlin Kane.

As a speaker or moderator for the GFOA Annual Conference, I agree to the following:

  1. I give my permission and authorize GFOA to use my name, title, affiliation, and other information contained within my bio or other submitted information for marketing purposes related to the annual conference.
  2. I understand that my presentation or portions of my presentation may be recorded, including audio and/or video and that GFOA may offer copies of the recording for sale after the conference or use in future promotional materials.
  3. I also understand that any presentation materials, including PowerPoint slides, handouts, or additional information need to be submitted in advance of the conference to my Session Coordinator by the deadline communicated to me that is outlined in this form. All presentation materials will also be posted on GFOA’s Learning Management System (LMS), conference app, or website for download. I also understand that I may not distribute additional hard copies of the handout at the session without the consent of GFOA.
  4. I will not include any copyrighted materials without permission or make any disparaging statements that would violate GFOA's code of ethics, professional standards, or GFOA's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  5. GFOA's conference is an in-person event and GFOA expects speakers to attend in Austin. I understand that GFOA has removed the previously stated requirement for attendees to provide negative COVID-19 tests or vaccine verification to attend the conference. Masks will be available onsite for individuals who choose to wear them, but not mandated for attendance. GFOA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Austin and across the United States and Canada and will make and communicate any changes to this policy if necessary.

Please complete the following information to help us prepare for and market your conference session. Information provided here will be posted on GFOA's website and used in other promotional materials.
