Attendees of the 2025 AFP FP&A Forum are not only in search of professional development content but are eager to delve into the latest developments and innovations shaping the present and future of Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A).

Seize the opportunity to share your expertise with FP&A professionals by applying to lead an educational session at the 2025 AFP FP&A Forum in Austin, TX. Showcase your insights, contribute to the collective knowledge of the community and be a key player in advancing the field of FP&A. Submissions are being accepted through July 19, 2024.

All submissions will be reviewed by the AFP FP&A Forum Planning Task Force. Decision notifications will be distributed in late September 2024. Please adhere to the submission requirements outlined on the proposal submission site.

  • You are permitted to submit more than one proposal covering FP&A topics.
  • Do not submit the same proposal topic under different educational tracks.
  • Do not create a speaker profile placeholder (e.g., TBD Speaker or Speaker TBD) if the speaker is not yet confirmed. Note that each proposal requires at least one (1) confirmed speaker.
  • When creating a speaker profile please include their email, not the submitter’s email. The email address is used solely for communicating information relevant to the session, should the proposal be accepted.
  • Each proposal must be completed in its entirety to be fully submitted.


All speakers must agree to provide a robust, substantive presentation deck to accompany their session, regardless of the format. Panel discussions and/or moderated interviews are required to provide presentations as well that support the discussion of the overall topic and help to summarize the key takeaways for the audience. All presentations must be delivered using the PowerPoint template that AFP provides.

AFP’s mission is to provide unbiased educational content for its members and certification holders, who make up most of the audience. Speakers must not engage in any sales activity during their session. Sales activity is limited to the exhibit hall and the other networking activities AFP provides.

Prohibited Sales Activities Include:

  • Product demonstrations of any kind.
  • Extensive highlighting of any product or service and contrasting it with others.
  • Handing out brochures, flyers or sales takeaways of any kind. The dissemination of such items is reserved for the exhibit hall floor only.
  • Conducting sign-in sheets, mass collection of business cards, or roll call.

If you have started or already submitted a proposal, you can return to the proposal later, until the close of the submission window, July 19, 2024, to add final edits before final submission.

Please contact Marcia Solomon at [email protected] or call (301) 961-8858 if you have any questions about submitting a proposal.

Speakers are responsible for their own travel arrangements/hotel accommodations. AFP does not pay honoraria for speaking on an educational session at 2025 AFP FP&A Forum. For information on hotels within the AFP block and travel information, click here.
