AIFD Wants YOU to Present a Main Stage Program at the 2019 Symposium

Would you like to present a program at the 2019 AIFD National Symposium taking place July 6 – July 11 in Las Vegas, Nev.? To consider your proposal we need as much information as possible. For the best consideration complete all questions on the application with as much detail as you can. We request a detailed outline of your program, including what principles or elements you plan to cover, sketches or pictures and/or a video clip. In this wonderful digital age, video cameras are everywhere. Think of this as an audition. Set up a simple scene, make a sample arrangement, relax, be yourself, talk about your program, explain it to the camera, make it come alive. Don’t worry about the quality.

We are looking for fresh ideas with educational content and your ability as a presenter to deliver the information effectively. If you are going on stage in front of a thousand people, you can perform for the camera. The video should be approximately 10-15 minutes in length, no editing or music needed-just you and your program ideas. Your video clip may be in any format: mini-DV, DVD or a digital file uploaded to us.

You also need to submit a completed proposal. Send completed proposal to Program Coordinator Brian Vetter AIFD, CFD at and Symposium Coordinator Joyce Mason-Monheim AIFD, CFD at  The deadline to submit your proposal is December 15, 2017.
