I have made nearly 300 presentations at academic and professional conferences as well as hospital grand rounds and related events. Most of these earned CME, CLE, CEU, or other professional development credits. I would be delighted to participate in your event too.
The following ranges and guidelines are based on averaging invitations from the past 24 months.
Local Events $500 to $1000
Regional & National Events
$1500 to $2500
Honoraria for other recent invitations that involved more planning and/or more presentations and meetings have ranged to $5000. On the other hand, honoraria for smaller organizations have been modest or waived.
In addition to providing an honorarium, it is expected that basic coach travel, meals, and lodging will be reimbursed.
In planning and preparing for a presentation, it is important to know:
Purpose (is it to inform, to persuade, or to build good will)
Audience (size, disciplines represented, captive or optional, paying or free, goals)
Logistics (date, time, length, location, polling, pre- and post-presentation events)
