About the NIRI Annual Conference Committee
The NIRI Annual Conference Committee (ACC) plays a vital role in developing the educational offerings of the NIRI 2020 Annual Conference. The ACC is established by the NIRI Board of Directors to advise on the educational content and provide general input for the program of the Annual Conference. Members of the ACC contribute their investor relations and business experience to develop the highest caliber content with the most compelling speakers on the vital topics and issues of the day. This is a hands-on volunteer role that includes actively developing session concepts, identifying and recruiting speakers, reviewing session proposals, and seeing sessions through to execution.
ACC Service Commitment
ACC members represent NIRI and create educational content to advance NIRI’s mission. The Committee term is one year, from September 2019 through June 2020. Committee members are expected to participate in all scheduled in-person meetings and calls. One-hour ACC planning calls are generally held once every three weeks from summer through December, bi-weekly from January through April, and weekly in May as the Conference approaches. Members also attend two in-person planning meetings, one in the fall, and one in the spring. Committee members are responsible for all expenses related to volunteering for the Committee, such as transportation and lodging associated with all Committee meetings and activities. ACC members are expected to attend the conference and will receive a 50% discount off the lowest published member rate for their NIRI 2020 Annual Conference registration.
Why Volunteer for the ACC?
Serving on the ACC is an opportunity for NIRI members to contribute to the investor relations community by offering their expertise and perspectives to shape the education provided at the world’s largest gathering of IR professionals. ACC membership offers opportunities for career development and network building and a way to explore service opportunities within the NIRI community. IRC-credentialed volunteers can claim PDUs for serving on the ACC.
ACC Eligibility and Composition
The ACC should be representative of the NIRI membership. At least 60% of the ACC will be NIRI Regular Members (corporate investor relations professionals and investor relations counselor professionals); other ACC members will be NIRI Associate Members (investor relations service providers and others). Attention will be given to ensure the Committee is appropriately diverse in terms of geography, industry, years of experience, and other demographics.
