VGM Calls for Heartland Speakers

It’s cold, and in some cases really cold, outside. But The VGM Group is already thinking of Iowa in June.

That’s when the member services group will hold its annual Heartland Conference, complete with a wide range of educational courses and an exhibit hall of durable medical equipment and complex rehab technology.

In preparation, VGM is calling for educational presenters to submit proposals to speak at the 16th rendition of the event, to be held in VGM’s hometown of Waterloo, June 12-15.

The 2017 event is themed “Where Community Meets Opportunity.”

Sara Laures, VGM’s VP of Special Projects and the Heartland Conference chairperson, said, “Heartland’s diverse educational program is designed to ensure that attendees leave each session equipped with effective strategies to achieve operational excellence. We’re looking for dynamic presenters who offer unique topics and how-to sessions that provide takeaways our attendees can implement within their business.”

Speaker proposals are due Jan. 13. For more information or to submit a proposal, click HERE.

Laures added, “Speaking at Heartland Conference is more than sharing your expertise to attendees. It truly is an experience that offers presenters numerous opportunities to network with our members and vendors, other presenters, as well as VGM associates.”
