For Speakers


    If you are interested in presenting at one of our monthly meetings, and to confirm your speaking engagement, we need these items to promote your presentation on our communications:

    1. The Date they wish to reserve to speak at a meeting

    2. The title of their presentation

    3. Speaker's Name

    4. A Brief description of info covered

    5. Confirmation of the AIA credits-- registered course number or certificate/flyer with AIA CEU logo etc.

    The speaker promises to take care of recording the classes with AIA, etc.

    Seminar Registration Assistance:

    If you want us to help you get one of your courses registered with the Florida Contractors Licensing Board, Florida Board of Professional Engineers, AIA, or other, we also need to get:

    1. Speaker Bio

    2. Powerpoint of the presentation/seminar

    3. And reimbursement from you to pay for filing fees with each agency

    Then we can submit if we have sufficient time before the meeting, many of these boards take 2 months before they review and if rejected for missing information, will take 2 more months for confirmation.


    Our chapter has annually offered a few Breakfast seminars, which we promote as FREE or a reduced rate, to the architects in the area; providing two one hour presentations with CEU's to help architects get their annually required continuing education for each license renewal. We have had attendance between 35 and 50 architects attend these breakfasts, often depending on the interest in a given topic. They usually run from 7am to 9:30am, and are either located at Cosentino Showroom or Sherwin-Williams Conference space, depending on the number of attendees. We have done this two ways.

    1. The manufacturer/presenter picks up the whole cost of the breakfast, about $15 per person.

    2. The other way has been to find 6 to 8 manufacturers who wish to sponsor the event and split the cost, each gets a table on the side of the banquet room, and 5 minutes to present what they have at their table, for the architects to stop by during the intermission or after the presentations for one-on-one discussions.


    We try to vary the seminar topics at the chapter meetings, so we don't have more than one presentation on a topic in any one year.

    We typically get a different crowd at our breakfasts, so this doesn't apply to the Breakfasts.

    We try not to have two competing manufacturers at any one breakfast.
