Once again this year, conference attendees have the opportunity to select a conference topic by voting for the Breakaway 2012 Wild Card Session.
Proposals for the Breakaway 2012 Wildcard Session may cover a different angle on a topic that's already part of the education program; or a relevant subject that's not currently part of the conference agenda. Entries must be topic focused, not geared toward a specific company, product or solution.
Speaker and Wild Card submissions are being accepted through May 18.
A selection committee will choose the best Wild Card topic proposals submitted before turning the final decision over to Breakaway registrants. Attendee voting will happen in June and the winner will be announced in early July.
