The 2018 ALGA Conference Committee is looking for speakers to present at our next conference, at The Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado on May 7-8, 2018.

We are now looking for ideas and presenters. This request for presentations is open through August 1, 2017. We encourage you to present your engaging, creative ideas and innovative presentation approaches. Some themes that interest members include:

  • analytical tools,
  • fraud,
  • effectively working with stakeholders,
  • audit workforce issues,
  • IT
  • increasing the impact of our work
  • equity

Your suggestions DO NOT have to fit within these areas. Unique and creative ideas are welcome!

Submit an Idea
If you’d like to present
send us a presentation proposal form!
If you don't want to speak yourself, but have a great session idea let us know. Send us an idea form!  Please contact Kristine Adams-Wannberg at  if you have any questions.

Want to make it FAST?

This last conference we tried out the FAST (For Auditors Short on Time) presentation format. It was a lot of fun. We'll consider and group those that want to make it FAST. We can give presenters support on how this new format can work.
