NBEA is passionate about helping business educators stay on top of industry trends and issues.  NBEA is also open to vendors sharing relevant information in an educational format about their business education-related products and services.  NBEA members, non-members, and vendors are welcome to submit a webinar proposal. NBEA is calling for webinar proposals that meet the following criteria:

  1. Consists of a clear and unambiguous topic for business educators. Webinars will last 30 minutes to an hour in length.  No webinar will officially exceed 60 minutes.
  2. Contain a description of 200 words or less and have three or four measurable outcomes.  Outcomes should begin with "the attendee will"...identify, recognize, examine, etc.
  3. Proposals must have a clear educational purpose.  Presentations from vendors should focus on an educational concept, not merely promoting the product or service.  For example, if a vendor has an educational technology app they would like to expose in an NBEA webinar, the app should be associated with an educational topic like improving interaction and collaboration in the classroom. Then, demonstrate the use of the app and how it meets those educational criteria. Illicit selling will not be allowed.
  4. NBEA webinars are to be interactive. So we will be allowing attendees to ask questions and respond to polls and other activities during the webinar.  

Please follow this link and choose two dates that you are available and list them below. 

NBEA will provide all of the webinar software, registration, and notifications. The webinar partner is welcome to help promote the event in their own social media circles.  Some webinars will be free, and other webinars may require a fee at NBEA's discretion. NBEA members will almost always have complimentary access to the webinar and recordings for members.  NBEA will promote the webinar to more than 16,000 stakeholders including members and non-members.  Webinars will be recorded and made available for playback on NBEA's member site.

To have a successful webinar we recommend a few things:

  • Have at least three poll questions that engage the audience during the session.  Webinars that are all lectures typically do not rank well.
  • Support your presentation will relevant citations, sources, and research.  This will be the quickest way to establish credibility.
  • Be succinct and focused.
  • Don't try to cram too much content into a limited time. Less is often more.
  • Be ready to engage the audience. The NBEA host will allow live verbal discussion and provide opportunities for Q and A. NBEA staff will moderate all questions to ensure they are focused and appropriate.
  • Include a free resource. 

NBEA will notify you within two weeks of submission whether your presentation has been chosen.
