Schedule & Topics

We’re posting our Schedule and Panel Topics here as they’re being finalized for our 2013 Conference. (You can also see the Panelists and Schedules from our previous Conferences in 2012 and 2011 by clicking on Schedule & Topics in the menu and scrolling down.)

Once again, there’s never a shortage of topics to cover this year at our Third Annual Independent Football Veterans Conference. We’re adopting an informal living room format and assembled discussion panels with audience participation instead of individual speakers for most of our Conference. Each panel discussion will be broadcast and posted as a separate topic covering the most important issues and questions retired players want to know.

Each panelist will be given an opportunity to talk approximately 5 – 10 minutes about their particular areas of expertise and interest, after which 40 – 45 minutes will then be devoted to general discussion with questions from our audience following the panel conversation. We’ll be posting a list of our panelists and speakers, along with their Bios shortly. Here’s our proposed 2013 Schedule so far (still in final development and subject to changes).
