I Want to be an RNC2016 Panelist

You Want to be a 2016 RNConvention Panelist
Use this page to submit to any panels you want to be a panelist on - your answers below will be posted for attendees to see. All panels are 60 minutes with 10 minutes between to allow breakdown/set-up time for any displays, handouts, etc., and to give attendees a break before their next panel or class.
NY Times & USA Today Bestselling Authors: To give reward for paying your dues of hard work and long hours of learning and excelling in your craft, all New York Times and/or USA Today Bestselling Authors will have their 2016 RNConvention registration fee waived (as well as their spouses) if they teach a class and/or participate on a panel to share their knowledge (more than one class is preferred, but at least one is required). Don't wait until just before the convention as all time-slots for classes will be filled by then and the offer will no longer apply.

A short bio. This should be about your career and credentials relevant to the panels you want to be a part of, not your hobbies, family, pets, likes and dislikes, as this is to describe you as a teacher on a topic. This is the one place NOT to be humble, as you want to impress attendees with your knowledge and experience so they feel confident they will highly benefit from attending your panel. To help with the not humble part, write it as if someone else is writing it about you.
