PMI Northeast Wisconsin Chapter

Speaker Selection Committee (2 volunteers needed)

Positions Overview:

The Speaker Selection Committee (SSC) is a team of 4 to 6 volunteers – but split into 2 groups.  One group consists of two (2) volunteers that focus on selecting speakers for the monthly events.  The second group focuses on selecting speakers for the PDD.

The reason we split the committee into 2 groups is because selecting speakers for PDD requires the committee members’ full attention from October thru January – and it was difficult for committee members to handle both monthly meetings and PDD.  However the 2 groups work together to ensure there are no repeat speakers among PDD and monthly meetings during a given year.  In addition, if it is determined that a speaker is better suited for PDD (or better suited for a monthly event), the committee can share information with the other group.

Duties:

There is a “Speaker Selection Process” document called “pminew-speaker-select-process.docx” located under the “Programs/Speaker Selection” folder in the document management system.  This document lists detailed steps for selecting, engaging, and paying speakers.  In addition, the “Programs/Speaker Selection” folder has examples of speaker agreements and confirmation letters.

The Director of Speaker Selection and Programs maintains a database of speakers and maintains the schedule for monthly meetings – which assist the SSC. 

Attend SSC meetings.

Reference and follow the “Speaker Selection Process” document.

Stay within budget.

For a member of the monthly meeting group:

  • In May/June, you will be assigned 3 to 4 monthly meeting for the next meeting cycle (September thru April) with a PDU area (such as technical, strategy, or leadership).
