IDSA's website has a list of speakers, but there is NO list of what their subjects will be.
There is also no "contact us" button on their website to ask.
Why exactly would I cover the expense if I don't know what I am getting?

It is sometimes very hard to get a full commitment from speakers, especially the big speakers that you want as a draw. People say "Yes" but getting them 100% in place is hard. Even when they commit getting the title of the presentation and blurb for the topic material is like pulling teeth. This is one of the "fun" jobs of the District VP and hopefully the planning committee, who are also volunteers.
