Call for Workshop Presenters

Conference Planning is underway for the 2019 VPPPA Region V Conference.  Our continued conference success cannot be accomplished without the assistance and support of our workshop presenters. Participant feedback each year is extremely positive. We’re expecting 300-500 attendees for the 2019 conference located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Conference workshops will be held on May 15th & 16th. 

If interested in presenting, please submit the application below before November 9, 2018 for review by the Region V Conference Planning Committee.   The Conference Planning Committee is soliciting technically oriented, educating, and practical presentations that fulfill the needs of attendees from VPP sites and prospective VPP locations at all experience levels.  The conference objective is to give attendees the opportunity to:

• Build upon their skills and knowledge through education, networking, and sharing of VPP best
• Learn about practical solutions and continuous improvement examples,
• Learn more about VPPPA and expand their network of VPP contacts.

Conference workshops should fall under one of the four VPP elements:

  • Management Leadership and Employee Involvement

  • Work-site Analysis

  • Hazard Prevention and Control

  • Safety and Health Training

Workshop presenters have the opportunity to attend the entire conference or one day registration at the early registration member rate of $350 or $250.
