Planning the Program

QuickTips

  • Determine the program’s learning objective with your CPD planner 
  • Discuss any potential competing programs or events with your CPD planner
  • Adjust the program content to the experience level of the target audience
  • Identify potential presenters with your planner (Note: Presenters must meet CPD approval)
  • Strive for diversity (gender, firm size, location, personality, etc.) when selecting presenters
  • Remind presenters they must contribute high quality materials (research or opinion paper, precedents, detailed checklist, etc.) to complement their presentation
  • Encourage presenters to interact with the audience, e.g. questions, brief polls, etc. 
  • Participate in pre-program meetings with presenters and your CPD planner to refine topics and avoid overlap in presentations
  • Respect all deadlines (e.g. presenter recruitment, agenda, materials) to keep the program on track
