  2. Complete required fields on the first page and click "save" to go to the next page 
  3. On the next page, you can add speakers and sponsors for the event. If you have speakers at your event, please provide them with the link to the required Speaker Agreement for each speaker. (Note: when entering speakers and sponsors into the form, both must have a profile in the HBA database to be added.
