The 7th Annual SharePoint Saturday - Omaha will be held on March 30, 2019. We’re excited to offer 5 tracks which are listed below. We’ve opened our Call For Speakers and invite you to submit presentation proposals.
To submit a session, please submit this form. Multiple submissions are encouraged so we have a number of sessions to choose from. Notifications of selected sessions will be sent out by February 9th. Remember - all speakers are invited to our Speaker Dinner at Gorats Steak House featuring a 22 oz T-Bone!
Each session is scheduled for 60 minutes and we will attempt to have 5 sessions in each track. We plan to have a Keynote speaker as well. Since this is a SharePoint conference, we prefer presentations to focus on what can be done out-of-the-box without making any purchases. If you represent a 3rd party vendor/solution, we have a specific Vendor track you might be interested in. You can find our Sponsor Package with further details on the Vendor track here. A popular option in the past has been to do one general session which lays out issues and provides many options for solutions and then do a Vendor track session which specifically talks about how your 3rd party tool solves the issue from the first session.
1. IT Pro/Admin - these sessions focus on administering SharePoint as well as the infrastructure that supports it. It can include both on-prem installations as well as hybrid. (Examples include Migration Tips, Architecture, How to Set SharePoint Up, Optimizing Search, and Security)

3. Power User/Business User - These sessions focus on what can be done with SharePoint by someone who doesn't have admin permissions.
