FPTA Call for Virtual Presentations

FPTA is seeking conference presentations that reflect innovative, cutting edge content. Presentations should provoke discussion and audience engagement, as well as facilitate knowledge transfer and the development of new skills. 

NOTE: FPTA has adjusted our Call for Presentations to reflect our move to a Virtual Conference format this October 2020. Our anticipated conference dates will likely occur the week of October 5th. However, stay tuned for finalized dates as we work to finalize our virtual conference platform vendor.

Presentations received from now through Friday, August 7, 2020 at 9:00pm (EST) will be considered for the Virtual Conference. Due to the volume of speaker applications, we cannot schedule briefing calls or respond to individual inquiries.

If you are a Corporate Member, consider teaming up with your colleagues and/or vendors to present a session on an innovative idea or best practice you have implemented in your agency.

Please review all of the information below before submitting your presentation for consideration:

FPTA members invest time in their day to participate in our conference sessions. Our members expect that presenters:

  • Will prepare for their event prior to presenting.
  • Have a significant knowledge and expertise of the subject area, and have sufficient presentation skills to effectively communicate.
  • Will engage and inspire the audience so they come out of the presentation buzzing with thoughts and ideas.

Proposals should address contemporary or emerging issues confronting the public transportation industry/profession.
