 2015 IIA Regional Conference Bid

In August 2013, the IIA New Orleans and Baton Rouge Chapters’ Boards approved moving forward with the bid process for a 2015 IIA Regional Conference.  This is a tremendous opportunity for both chapters!
 
Jude Viator from the Baton Rouge Chapter and Pam Fiegel from the New Orleans Chapter will Co-Chair the event.  They will present the bid to the IIA Regional Conference Committee on December 11, 2013.  The draft proposal is due by October 31, 2013. 
 
IIA` HQ assigned a Staff Liaison to assist with the bid preparation.  For a successful bid, we are soliciting members from both Chapters as Subcommittee Chairs and volunteers to help with the different conference activities included in the proposal.  They include:
 
·         Finance (budget, income, expenses – work closely with IIA Headquarters)
·         Educational and Conference Program (program format, tracks, general sessions, speakers)
·         Sponsorship and Exhibitor (products/services addressing professional needs and interests, corporate sponsorships, etc.)
·         Marketing (theme and logo, advertising, promotion, websites, social media, etc.)
·         Registration (registration set up, different fees, onsite registration logistics, etc.)
·         Facilities (hotel, meeting space, reception, etc.)
·         Volunteers (assist in all areas)
 
For each area, the IIA Staff Liaison and other IIA HQ personnel will be available to help.  We need at least a commitment of 12 people to work with us on this.  If you are interested in helping with the bid, please contact either Jude Viator at jviator@pncpa.com or Pam Fiegel at pfiegel@entergy.com.  Although we need immediate help with the bid, please note that the amount of time for the event and the activities leading to the event will span over 2 years. 
 
With volunteers like you, we know this conference will be successful!
