The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Center for Education and Workforce invites your proposal for our Talent Pipeline Management (TPM)® National Learning Network (NLN) fall 2022 conference. This year’s conference will be the first in-person convening for the TPM NLN since 2019. TPM Academy® graduates along with their talent supply chain partners are invited to join their peers for a full-day experience to collaborate and foster a sense of community, learn, and innovate on the topics of most interest to the network. 

What we are looking for:
that deliver exciting, engaging, and content rich sessions built on your own experiences implementing the principles of TPM. Our sessions are split into two categories: “Apprentice”, those who are just starting their TPM or workforce development work, and “Savant”, those that are experienced practitioners looking for a deeper level of learning on a particular topic. Presentations may be general enough for a large audience or developed for a specific TPM role or type of experience/application (e.g., rural communities, collaboration for small- and medium-sized businesses).  

  • Preference will be given to proposals that fit within the session topics listed below. 
  • Preference will be given to proposals that provide a workshop/engagement component that allow participants to walk away with something tangible/actionable. 
  • We welcome team proposals and not all presenters must be TPM Academy graduates. In fact, if you have partners in your work that can provide a different perspective, we welcome their participation.  
As a Conference presenter, you will:
  • Receive 1:1 support from Chamber Foundation staff in developing your session outline for our audience. 
  • A $250/person stipend. 
  • Meet, network, and share your expertise with our TPM NLN network.  
  • Have your name and business affiliation published in conference materials. 
  • Receive recognition in pre-Summit marketing.  
  • Receive recognition at the pre-Summit reception on September 26.
