Speaking of educational programs, Peter Huntoon forwarded this Call for Papers for the next Memphis Paper Money show.
Call for Papers
Memphis Speakers Series
2011 Memphis International Paper Money Show
June 10-12, 2011
The speaker series was a big hit and major draw at Memphis 2010. The program for Memphis 2011 is going to be even better!
We'll be commemorating the 50th anniversary of both the Society of Paper Money Collectors and International Bank Note Society.
We invite presentations on any fiscal paper or fiscal paper tie-in topic. We expect a packed program so submit your proposal early to ensure your place in it. Deadline for submissions is March 1st so we have time to do a good job with press releases, scheduling, and preparation of the show program.
Format: Talks are scheduled on the hour throughout the show. Each talk is allotted 50 minutes, which includes time for questions. Speakers arrive 10 minutes before the hour for setup.
We encourage talks that are lavishly illustrated so most speakers present Powerpoint presentations loaded on their own laptops. We simply plug your laptop into the digital projection system, and you are ready to go with all of your special fonts and whistles and bells that you build into your presentation.
A very successful experiment was tried in 2010 in which speakers give a presentation and set up a parallel exhibit in the exhibition area. This allowed people who attended the talk to see the actual objects. The exhibit also served to advertise the talk.
(1) lists of presenter(s) and full contact information for each,
(2) title of talk,
(3) catchy concise newsworthy description of the content of your talk - this will be your primary draw,
(4) special equipment needs such as a slide projector or number of cases if you plan to bring show-and-tell items.
Submit your applications by the March 1st deadline preferably by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to Speaker Series Chairman Peter Huntoon, P. O. Box 60850, Boulder City, NV 89006.
