Speaking only for myself, I'm not afraid of public speaking. It
does have to be a topic I feel comfortable with, which usually means
either re-using a talk that I have previously done before (albeit
updated), or updating a topic that I've talked on before.
It is true that the PC will not get enough of these if it continues to
rely on contributions. Which of us *wants* to present? Public speaking
is the number one common fear, bar none.
The former is easier for me, as I can take an existing
presentation and re-work it (more or less). The latter is more
difficult but probably more interesting for many in the audience who
may have seen the presentation before.
All you gotta do is help me get there, help me with the cost of
staying there, and fit into my schedule. I don't require any
speakers fees, and for small conferences I'd be willing to help more
with the expenses, but larger conferences would need to provide more
of the funding themselves. However, I will consider all offers.
My registration at the SAGE Speakers Bureau (see
<http://www.sage.org/speakers/speakerhtml/15.mm>) is a little old,
but mostly still correct.
I'm not a candidate either, and will not serve if anyone was
stupid enough to try to elect me.
p.s. No, I'm not a candidate. If elected, I will not serve. ;-)
But I'd be happy to speak, if someone was interested in hearing me.
