CPMT's Distinguished Lecturer Program

Your CPMT Society maintains a Distinguished Lecturer program, with key technologists available to give talks in various venues.

- These speakers are 'Fellow Caliber' members of our technical community;
- They are available for any CPMT (co)-sponsored venue;
- CPMT travel assistance of up to $1,000 may be available:
    - Requires inability of requesting organization and/or
        DL's employer to pay;
    - Any honoraria must first be used for travel expenses;
    - CPMT travel assistance is the last-used source
        of travel money.

To schedule a Distinguished Lecturer, contact the Distinguished Lecturer directly or contact the Program Director, Kitty Pearsall, CPMT VP of Education. (The DL him/herself should report all DL talks to Kitty Pearsall and Marsha Tickman -- whether or not travel assistance was requested/granted -- for our annual report.)

Also, contact the Program Director for details and approval.
