PDC 2024 and Technical Meetings

Call for Speakers

The ASSP Region VIII Long Island Area Chapter would like to invite presenters to submit proposals for the Long Island Professional Development Conference (PDC). Our speakers give attendees the opportunity to develop professional skills and knowledge, to tackle and provide solutions to new and current challenges in the fields of EHS, and to promote the growth of new entrants in the field. The PDC offers a wide range of practical and technical programs, including management techniques and soft skills.

Presentations are typically 60 minutes long, including the Q&A session.

If you are interested in being a speaker for the PDC or a technical meeting, please complete this form.
