|Call for Presentations & Speakers|
The Synthetic Turf Council is seeking your input for presenters and topics for the 2017 Spring Membership Meeting in Las Vegas, NV.

We want to ensure that your time and involvement at the STC meetings are of value.
All presentation proposals received on or before Thursday, December 1, 2016 will be reviewed by the STC Program and Education Committees.

STC reserves the right to make recommendations for revisions of content within proposals prior to acceptance. Participation as a presenter is by invitation only after review of the proposal. Presenters will be notified only of their acceptance.

STC's Non-Commercial Policy:
STC Program Committee is seeking valuable educational sessions and are always critical of presenters or sessions that are self-promotional. STC policy requires that presenters do not use a conference session for commercial sales pitches, self-promotion or unwarranted criticism of a competitor. Presentations should only advance the educational process; sales pitches do not and are therefore not acceptable. Speakers are not permitted to distribute company promotional literature, brochures or sales materials in any form to attendees during their session.
