Vendor Expo Information
In general, conference attendees come to the conferences to learn how to better automate corporate tax functions and get ideas from their peers and industry experts. Our meetings are kept informal to create an open, friendly, educational environment. For information on the Vendor Expo and other networking opportunities at the ACT Conferences, contact usRequests for booths at ACT conferences are available only to ACT Sponsors at this time.
Speaker Details and Forms
Attendees at our conferences suggest future topics and speakers. Attendee feedback is presented to the entire membership to get feedback on the key topics and issues that should be addressed at the next conference. Based on this feedback, the conference committee meets to discuss the feedback results and determine known speakers for the highest ranking topics. In general, speaker slots go to Regular members first, Sponsor members, and then to Associate members. Any remaining speaker slots are then offered to non-members. In some cases, a specific presenter will be desired (such as an author or professor). In this case, the program committee can go directly to the speaker. As a policy, ACT does not pay speakers, waive conference fees or reimburse for travel expenses. Speakers are invited as experts in their area to share information with peers on a professional level. All speakers are informed that the sessions (other than Vendor expo), must be educational in nature and not be a sales presentation.

Presentations are generally required to be submitted by the end of March each year to allow time for review, revisions from the Program Committee, and posting. If a speaker is unable to fulfill their obligations, a replacement speaker will be selected.
