Calling All Instructors!

SAVE is also looking for workshop proposals. We are now organizing the pre- and post-Summit training program for the 2021 Value Summit. Our training sessions, to be held prior to or after the Summit, will be geared to the needs of our members and other attendees interested in value-related education. This includes possible SAVE approved Value Methodology Fundamentals 1 (VMF 1) and Value Methodology Fundamentals 2 (VMF 2) courses. As an instructor, SAVE will compensate you for conducting a workshop. Click HERE to submit a workshop proposal.

Please note, proposals will only be accepted through the online workshop submission portal. The deadline to submit is 11:59 PM Eastern Time, November 30, 2020.

Professional Development

SAVE is once again offering interactive professional development sessions at the 2021 Value Summit. The purpose is to provide our membership with hands on skills, training and additional experience in the core competencies. These interactive professional development sessions will be held as a track or tracks during the Summit. These sessions are to be one-hour to two-hours in duration and must address one of the core competencies. To view the core competencies, please click HERE.

This submission is for short (one to two-hour) interactive professional development sessions to be run during the main Summit tracks. These sessions are different from the pre- and post-Summit training sessions and there is no instructor reimbursement associated with these sessions.

When submitting your proposal to provide an interactive professional development session, you must provide an outline for your session as well as a sample of the course material. Please provide a brief abstract of your interactive professional development session as well. Click HERE to submit a proposal.

Please note, proposals will only be accepted through the online professional development submission portal. The deadline to submit is 11:59 PM Eastern Time, November 30, 2020.
