Request a Speaker

The Officers and executive leaders of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) are available to speak at a limited number of chapter meetings and international society conferences to foster the exchange of surgical knowledge globally.

The planned conference should have the support and/or involvement of the local ACS chapter or national surgical organization.

Requests for ACS speakers should be sent one year in advance—at minimum six months in advance—to ensure enough time for consideration. Please send your request via e-mail to Brian Frankel, Manager of International Chapter Services. In your request, please provide the following information:

  • Name of event
  • Location of event
  • Dates of event
  • Session title/topic
  • Session date
  • Session format
  • Audience size

Please note the ACS makes reasonable attempts to accept as many invitations as possible, but reserves the right to decline an invitation because of budgetary constraints or other unforeseen circumstances.
