Be a Speaker/Presenter

Have an idea for an education program?
DBA International is always seeking innovative and insightful speakers and topics from the debt buying and receivables management community to build a continuous flow of educational programming throughout the year.

Want to be a presenter at DBA International’s Annual Conference?
Held in February each year, DBA International’s Annual Conference is one of the most respected and well attended events in the industry attracting over 1,100 attendees and showcasing over 100 exhibitors. Generally, there is a pre-conference program in addition to more than 25 presentations in different education tracks including Compliance & Legal, Operations, New Markets and Skip Tracing during the conference. We encourage proposals from the debt buying and receivables management community to build a strong educational agenda for the conference scheduled for February 9-11, 2016 at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

A Call for Presentations is sent out in June and due back around the first of August. You will have an opportunity to submit a proposal then. Current trends and creativity should be the focus for your presentation, panel discussion, case study or other unique session. Preference is given to exceptional ideas to prepare our industry colleagues to be successful in the current economic, regulatory and legislative environment. Presentations should only advance the education process and may not be sales oriented. DBA will be providing Continuing Legal Education Credit (CLE) for classes fulfilling CLE requirements and Continuing Education Credits for classes fulfilling DBA International Certification Requirements.

Benefits of submitting a proposal:

  • Over 1,100 industry colleagues attend the annual conference;
  • Pre- and post-promotion to over 1,000 DBA members and past attendees;
  • Recognition pre- and post-conference as a subject matter expert; and
  • Contributing to furthering the education of the debt buying industry and the DBA Certification program.

Year-Round Education Programs
DBA International offers education programs year round, not just at our events. If you have an educational topic you would like to see presented as a DBA webinar, for example, you may use this convenient form to submit your suggestions at any time.
