July 20-22, 2021
Welcome to the first annual GovCon Accounting Summit, the premier educational experience for government contract accounting professionals. We love talking about the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), Cost Accounting Standards (CAS), timekeeping, and journal entries and know you do, too!
Marketing and CPE administration sponsor.
Educational workshop sponsor.
Join us for up to three days of educational sessions and earn up to 20 CPE credits. You’ll have an opportunity to learn from industry leading accountants, attorneys, and consultants on a variety of government contract accounting topics and see some of the latest software tools in action during live demonstrations.
This year’s event is virtual (hosted by Cvent) with a plan to offer in-person and hybrid opportunities in 2022. We’ll announce the dates and location for the 2022 event by July 22, 2021.
Call for Presentations
Presentation slots are 60 minutes in length, allowing for 50 minutes of education and 10 minutes of Q&A. Presentations will fall into one of two tracks: Education or Software Demo.
Benefits of Presenting
In addition to the networking benefits, you will enjoy:
- Complimentary registration to the Summit,
- Publication of your session summary and PowerPoint presentation on the event website, and
- Inclusion in LBP publications, expanding your business’ footprint and providing further opportunities for public speaking.
Please note that neither LBP nor the Summit will reimburse presenters for any of their expenses related to presentations and/or workshops at the Summit.
Presentations are expected to make significant contributions to the professional dialogue and development of summit attendees. Therefore, we require that all presentations must be:
- focused on GovCon accounting,
- presented on the Summit’s official PowerPoint template,
- recorded and available for viewing of all Summit attendees,
- available for download (.ppt or .pdf),
- eligible for CPE (four polling questions are required),
- in the spirit of facilitation and education of both attendees and presenters, and
- not delivered in a way that is seen to be a direct sales pitch.
Software demonstrations, which are inherently more sales oriented, shall make reasonable efforts to focus on software functionality and how it addresses a requirement for one or more of the business systems mentioned in the FAR.
While this is a virtual event, we encourage presenters to use varying approaches such as panel discussions and case studies to meet the different learning styles of attendees.
Presentations that meet the above requirements will be evaluated for the clarity of the proposal, the strength of the learning objectives, the timeliness and relevance of the topic to GovCon accounting professionals, the thought-provoking and practical value of the subject, and the overall conference content.
Sponsorship will NOT impact our selection of presenters.
Interested speakers shall submit the following for consideration:
- Session Title (7 words)
- Short Description for Program (50 words)
- Long Description for Proposal Evaluation (1,500 words – may include outline or bullet points)
- 4 Learning Objectives (action verb statements)
- Session Type (Presentation, Panel Discussion, Interactive Workshop, Software Demonstration)
- Speaker Name
- Speaker Credentials or Qualifications
- Speaker Bio
The Summit seeks to ensure diversity in thought and requests presenters to limit their proposals to two high-quality sessions. This would include solo and co-presented sessions.
Presentations selected for the summit must meet the requirements for CPE eligibility which include four (4) polling questions randomly placed throughout the presentation.
May 5, 2021 – All presentation proposals are due no later than 5:00 PM EDT on Wednesday, May 5th.
May 26, 2021 – Selection status will be communicated on or before Wednesday, May 26th.
June 30, 2021 – Final presentations are due no later than 5:00 PM EDT Wednesday, June 30th. No changes will be made to presentations after this date, unless requested by the Summit.
We welcome our industry colleagues to join us as sponsors in one of the following categories. Sponsorship is open to accountants, attorneys, consultants, and software vendors. Sponsorship is not required for presenting an educational session and will not improve your chances of being selected as a speaker. Sponsorship at Silver level or higher is required for software demonstrations.
