Call for Speakers

Processes & Requirements
All presentations should be directed at professionals in the holistic nutrition and wellness industries. Proposals will be reviewed for objectivity and relevance of subject matter.

Sales-oriented proposals will not be considered and all presentations must limit any sales-related information to no more than 2% of content and/or time.
Please be aware that NANP has a highly-educated membership, many at PhD level and many with several years experience in their field. We also have student-members. Our intent is to select presenters who will allow our student-members to stretch, while teaching our advanced professionals something new.
