2021 Predict Advisory Council

The Predict Advisory Council is responsible for program development and related decisions that guide the planning and execution of the Predict Conference. The event is produced within a CEIR board approved budget. The Council may seek CEIR Executive Committee approval on matters of CEIR policy and/or expenses outside the event budget.

In addition to planning the annual event, the council will also provide an annual review of the immediately completed event and provide recommendations for shaping the event going forward. Recommendations should include such items as frequency, size, dates, location, sponsorship guidelines, registration fees and any other matters that may be assigned from time to time or that the council believes need to be addressed.
