2024 Call For Presentations

Become a Texas EMS Conference Speaker

We are thrilled to announce that the Call for Presentations for the 2024 Conference is now open! We encourage you to submit your innovative ideas and fresh perspectives on old topics. Our state is diverse, and we are seeking presentations that appeal to a broad audience. We are especially interested in rural content, BLS focused topics, and airway material to meet the needs of our rural and volunteer attendees. Do you have a leadership-focused talk that you’re passionate about? We also want to hear from you. We generally receive three to four times as many submissions as we can use, so make yours stand out!

As a speaker, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and network with other leaders in EMS. Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase your expertise and creativity. Submit your proposal today!

Information Needed for Topic Submission

The call for presentations form collects information we need to evaluate your presentation and plan for the nuts-and-bolts of offering the presentation. This information is saved in our speaker database and used throughout the planning process, so please provide as much detail as possible.

Deadline for submission is March 3, 2024 at 11:59 PM CST. If you encounter problems with the online form, or have any questions, please email education@tex-ems.com for assistance.
