The Call for Speakers for the APMA 2024 Annual Scientific Meeting (The National) is now open! The conference will take place August 8–11 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. Submit your proposal now to be a part of the can’t-miss event for every podiatrist. The deadline to submit a presentation is Friday, October 20.

Broad topic areas include surgery, biomechanics, dermatology, complications, wound care, and trauma; however, any topic related to foot and ankle care will be considered. Note: To be considered for the faculty, you must be an APMA member in good standing.

APMA will again use a portal to make the application process easier for you. To apply, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the Call for Speakers site.
  2. Select “Enter Now,” then select “Click Here” under “New to This Site?” on the left side of the screen.
  3. Enter your email address, create your login credentials and password, agree to the data policy, and select “Enter.”
  4. Fill out the required (and optional, if desired) speaker fields. Note: If someone else is filling out the application on your behalf, these responses should correspond to the presenting physician.
  5. Disclose any financial relationships. If you have a disclosure, enter the name of the commercial interest and the nature of the relationship, then click “Add.” Complete this step for all financial relationships.
  6. Select and upload a current CV in PDF format.
  7. You will then be directed to your Author Homepage. To create a new presentation for consideration, select “Create a New Presentation” under “My Submissions.”
  8. Provide the presentation title and learning objectives, then select “Add New Presentation.” Once you click this button, you will receive a confirmation that your presentation was successfully submitted for consideration.

You may add additional presentation topics or modify a submission until the Call for Speakers deadline on October 20. Once all submissions are received, the APMA Education Committee will review the presentations. The final decision on the educational program for The National is made by the APMA Board of Trustees based on the recommendations of the Education Committee.

The Call for Speakers portal is available year-round for members to submit topics to be considered for the APMA Online Learning Center. If you are interested in submitting a lecture presented as an internet live (webinar) or an on-demand CECH activity, please follow the instructions above and select “Live Virtual” or “On Demand” under “Speaker Option.”
