All presenters and session organizers are expected to review the webinar Towards a More Accessible and Inclusive Presentation and to take the necessary steps to ensure that their presentations are welcoming and accessible to everybody.
Every presenter and moderator must sign a presenter agreement for each session in which you are participating. Presenter Agreements must be completed as soon as possible. Failure to complete a presenter agreement may result in removal of a presenter from your session.
Presentation & Handouts
A notification will be sent to presenters when the Presentation Upload Center is available. A link will be provided with instructions on how to upload your presentation. We recommend that you bring a backup copy of your presentation on a jump drive to the meeting.
Annual Meeting handouts are supplemental materials meant to complement session content. Conference attendees use the handouts as a way to capture the major issues addressed in a session. You may also choose to include a PDF version of your presentation as an additional handout.
Here are some helpful guidelines for creating meaningful handouts, as well as some examples from the 2013 Annual Meeting:
- Social Media Case Study
- Interpreting Balance Sheets: What Do They Really Tell You?
- Capital Campaign Clinic
- Green Exhibit Checklist
- Towards a More Accessible and Inclusive Presentation. Slides and a summary of the presentation are also available.
