The Audience

TMTS attendees are public and private finance sector employees including State Treasurers and staff including directors and managers who oversee investing and debt, college and ABLE savings plans, unclaimed property, operations, and financial education. Other treasury staff include Chiefs of Staff, communications, government relations, and technology directors. Also welcome are private sector, non-governmental, and other nonprofit employees. Members of the press may attend this event.

Session speakers should provide attendees with cutting edge information on research, effective practices, case studies, and policy initiatives that support sound financial policies and programs. Sessions should reflect workplace innovations through a higher level of engagement between colleagues and promote idea-sharing in an interactive format.

Benefits of Presenting

If selected to present, the panel speakers will have the opportunity to gain recognition as experts among your peers, colleagues, and other thought leaders. Attendees will take your information back to their agencies for high-level discussions and/or immediate implementation. As a presenter, you will enhance your credibility and stature among an influential audience, refresh your personal knowledge as you prepare materials and visuals for presentation, and challenge yourself and your colleagues with thought provoking discussions and interactions during the session.

Requirements and Specifications

Evaluation Process

Members of the NAST Program & Learning Committee, ASPN, CSPN, NAUPA, SDMN and other relevant Committees and Caucuses will evaluate the proposals. Any program member who submits a proposal (or is on a panel) will recuse him/herself from evaluating his/her own proposal.

Corporate Affiliate Members are invited to submit proposals that highlight relationships with NAST public finance members. Likewise, Treasurers and agency staff are encouraged to submit proposals showcasing where they excel. Sessions with diverse multi-person panelists (from public and private sectors) will be given preferential rating.

Sessions will be evaluated on the quality of the proposal, relevance to track, application to the profession, and qualifications of speakers. Panels of practitioners are preferred over single presenters for a wider range of participation.
