A Caregiving Keynote Contest (Be Our Conference Keynote!)

0
We're looking for a great presenter to open our second day of our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference.

It could be you!

Through our National Caregiving Conference, we work to create opportunities for family caregivers and former family caregivers. (About 90% of our presenters and panelists are family caregivers and former family caregivers.) With that in mind, this contest puts the focus on the special message a family caregiver or former family caregiver can deliver to inspire and energize us. (Be sure to check out our NCC18 agenda.)

If you have a great message to share, care for a family member (or previously cared for a family member), you'll want to enter our contest for a chance to be our keynote presenter at our National Caregiving Conference which takes place November 9 and 10 in Chicago. You'll also win a trip to our conference -- we'll pay for the costs of your travel within the U.S. and for two nights at our conference hotel, the Chicago Marriott O'Hare. And, we'll help you arrange for respite care so your caree receives the care he or she needs while you attend our conference.

To enter our contest, tell us about your caregiving story and the message you want to share in a YouTube video (recommended length: five minutes). Once you’ve created your video, complete and submit the entry form below at the bottom of this post. Deadline to submit your entry is July 13.

Keep in mind this year’s conference theme:

Our Best Selves. Finding Our Best During a Time That Feels Like the Worst.


Our conference theme challenges us to find our best in our relationships, with our health, in our faith, with our finances, in our careers and during caregiving. We’ll look at how caregiving impacts us and how we can best manage that impact. Your entry could include your message about how you found and find your best during caregiving. The keynote presentation will be 45 minutes in length.

I'll review the video submissions and pick my five favorites. We’ll then post those five video submissions on Caregiving.com and ask visitors and members of Caregiving.com to vote for the individual they would like to present our keynote. Voting will begin July 23 and end on July 27. We'll announce the winner on July 28.

The contest details are:

  • Tell us your caregiving story and a message you would like to share as a keynote presenter in a YouTube video (recommended length: five minutes).

  • Once you’ve created your video, complete and submit the entry form below. Deadline to submit your entry is July 13.

  • Voting on the entries will begin on July 23 and end on July 27.

  • We’ll announce the winner on July 28.

  • The winner will present our keynote speech at our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference on November 10. You'll also win a trip to our conference -- we'll pay for the costs of your travel within the U.S. and for two nights at our conference hotel, the Chicago Marriott O'Hare. And, we'll help you arrange for respite care so your caree receives the care he or she needs while you attend our conference.


We look forward to listening to your message!
