2025 Call for Presentations

WIRMC wouldn't be what it is without YOU sharing your passion and industry experience!

Submissions are open 6/24-8/30

Fill out this form to submit your presentation
Deadline - Friday, August 30th, 2024 at    4    PM    CST

Contact Kelly@RecyclingConnections.org with questions regarding submissions
When preparing your submission, please refer to this preview of the form.
The conference planning committee will review all submissions and make selections by the end of September, which is when presenters can expect to be notified.  Thank you for your time, and we hope to see you in February!  

We are convening once again at the Chula Vista in Wisconsin Dells for WIRMC 2025!  The conference will be held Wednesday, Feb 26 - Friday, February 28th.  We are looking for engaging presentations that educate, inspire, and spark discussion among professionals in solid waste and resource management.  Presentations will be delivered in person. Every presentation will have a moderator available to provide support to the speakers and help engage attendees during Q&A.  

Standard presentations are expected to run for 50 minutes, followed by an additional 5-10 minutes for Q&A, and will be delivered on Thursday (2/27) and Friday (2/28).  For those preferring to provide a "workshop style" presentation of 1.5 hours+, please note that workshops can only be scheduled on either Wednesday or Friday.  If you are open to giving either a standard or workshop style presentation, please indicate that on the form.

 

Presentation proposals are due no later than August 30, 2024 at 4PM.  The conference committee will review all submissions and make final selections in September.  You will be notified if your submission was selected or not by late September. 

 

Please review our Tips for Submitting a Winning Proposal for some best practices to create an engaging presentation.
