Speak & Present at CLE


If you are interested in becoming a speaker or have an idea for a presentation or event, please contact the CLE Department at (816) 474-4322.


Topic title and description

Once you have finalized the details of your presentation, please provide the CLE team with a topic title and 2-3 sentence description of your presentation, This information will be used to apply for CLE credit for your program and to market the event.

Speaker/author biographies

A short biography and speaker contact information are also needed for program publicity prior to the event and introductions on the day of the event. Please send an abbreviated biography to the CLE team prior to your presentation.

Material preparation

Course materials are the lasting reminder of you and your presentation. Long after the seminar, attendees will turn to your materials for reference. Accordingly, CLE governing bodies require “high-quality materials” in support of seminars. The format of your materials should be adjusted to your own style and subject matter. Material formats range from a short outline to a citation-heavy treatise. Please submit your materials to the CLE team at least one week prior to your presentation. In most cases, materials are distributed in electronic format. Attendees will access the materials from a PDF file that will be sent to registrants via e-mail prior to the seminar.

Audio/Visual equipment

KCMBA will provide a computer, projector, screen and microphones for your presentation. If you require additional equipment, please advise at your earliest convenience.

Speaker attendance

Speakers may attend some or all of the event at which they present free of cost. Please notify the registration staff.
