Speaker Commitment Form - Are
Past Due - February 1
To ensure that we have your most current contact information,
biography, and a/v requirements, we ask that you please complete
the following commitment form.
The program is divided up into 3 rooms - throughout three
days. Each session on any particular day is then divided up into
two 45 minute talks (35 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes
for Q&A). Both speakers in a given session should be present
10 minutes before the start of that session regardless of who
speaks first. (This is to allow for an audio/visual check and
an easy transition between speakers.) In addition, we ask that
the presenter who speaks first in a session remain present throughout
the remainder of the second talk in that session. Please feel
free to again review the conference
Schedule-at-a-Glance for clarification on your
presentation time or contact me directly at [email protected].
