IPAI is seeking proposals for breakout session speakers and a keynote speaker at our 65th Annual State Conference at the Marriott Hotel in Normal, Illinois. Breakouts will be held Monday, March 27, and Tuesday, March 28, 2023. The keynote will take place during the opening general session on Monday, March 27, at 8 am. All presentations will be in-person. There is no virtual component to the conference.
Presentations should be relevant, engaging, thought-provoking, challenging, and seek to motivate attendees. Property assessment and appraisal professionals as well as subject matter experts in areas like land use, zoning, planning, leadership, management, and personal development are encouraged to submit proposals. There is no cost to present, but all breakout session speakers receive a 50% discount off conference registration (if they choose to attend the whole conference).
All vendors and industry partners are valued allies in assessment standards and best practices and are welcome to submit to the Call for Speakers. Please note, these cannot be product demonstrations or sales pitches for your products, and your presentation must include an assessment official from a township, county, or state office to partner with you in the presentation.

The demonstration can be made by members of your sales team or account executives.

Contact us to learn more about sponsorship and product demonstrations.
All submissions will be reviewed by the State Conference Committee. They will consider submission requests in the overall needs of the conference. Some selection criteria include:
