The Drupal GovCon planning team has created the Drupal GovCon Speaker Agreement to outline the expected responsibilities of Drupal GovCon speakers. Please read through the items listed below, and click on 'Agree' when submitting your session.


I understand that Drupal GovCon is a no-cost conference; but tickets are required. It is my responsibility to register in advance of arriving at Drupal GovCon.

Speaker Profiles

I will fill out my user profile on Sessionize, including full name and a photo, with the understanding that my session may not display properly if this information is not provided in time for the schedule.

Session Integrity

Sessions are selected based on a combination of content, speaker experience and description. If a session was selected, it was selected as it was submitted, and any changes to the content or speaker team need to be approved by the Program Team. Please note, the Program Team reserves the right to remove a session at their own discretion, including if dramatic changes are made to the session’s content or speaker team.

Session Preparation

I understand that speaking at Drupal GovCon is both a great honor and responsibility. If I am unable to devote the time and energy to this effort, I will notify the Drupal GovCon planning team and Drupal GovCon will replace my session.

I understand that if I am participating on a panel or lab that I am expected to communicate with the other speakers on my session before the event. I understand that if I am delivering a group or solo presentation, I am expected to spend a significant amount of time preparing for my session before the event.

To aid in schedule planning, I will also communicate any of the following with the Program Team:

  • Schedule conflicts

  • Session format (panel, Q+A, Lab, etc…)

  • Technical requirements/requests

  • Changes to your speaker lineup

Obtaining Consent

I understand that I am responsible for obtaining any required consents, permissions, and clearances to display or otherwise use any materials (both visual and audio) that I incorporate in my session.

Promoted Content

I understand that my session is for information sharing purposes only and that it is not a marketing opportunity. I agree that I will not use my session to promote any company, brand, or product.

Staying On Topic and On Time

I understand that staying focused on the topic outlined in the title and description of my session is extremely important. During my session, I pledge to stay focused on the topic at hand and make sure that the information presented adheres to the difficulty level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced) designated for my session.

Code of Conduct

I understand that my slides and on-stage remarks must abide by the Code of Conduct for this conference. I understand that my slides may be reviewed ahead of time, and that I may need to modify my presentation if it does not adhere with the Code of Conduct. I also understand that if, while I am presenting, I fail to abide by the spirit of the Code of Conduct, my session recording will not be published.

Session Recording

I have read the Media Policy and understand that my session will be recorded and made publicly available following the conference.
