And encompass:

  • Base Pay: Broad-based, executive or global

This is your opportunity to share the great stuff you've been doing with your colleagues! We welcome and are accepting presentation suggestions for our 2017-2018 (September through June) education year. A strong preference is to have joint consultant and practitioner presentations. This provides the best mix of theory and practical application.

To be considered as a CCA speaker/presenter, please take a moment to complete the online Call for Presentations Form. Our Program Committee reviews entries in the late spring/early summer, and will contact those who are selected to present.

Our Monthly Events are typically 1.5 hours long, while some may be 3 hour Symposium programs, usually done in a panel format. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. with the presentation starting at 9 a.m. Presentations generally take place in a downtown Chicago (though some meetings may be scheduled at a suburban location) on the second Wednesday of each month during September, October, November, January, February, March, April and May. In December, the association hosts a complimentary program and Holiday reception that takes place in the evening. The association hosts its Annual Summit in June. Additionally, we do schedule some 60-minute webinars, particularly during the winter months when travel can be more difficult.
