Vendor user speaker nominations should be provided to Carol Calhoun Michalik (firstname.lastname@example.org
) as early as possible. A phone conference will be set with the nominated individual. The purpose of this call is to learn more about the story the user has to share, determine the best fit for them in the agenda and build a comfort level for the use by discussing exactly what they will be required of them to participate. As soon as this call has taken place, the vendor company will be notified if their nominee has been accepted and what panel they will be participating in.
