Prior to the Conference:

  1. Make sure you are registered for the conference prior the preregistration deadline! All presenters are asked to register and pay normal registration fees. https://conference.pncwa.org/register-to-attend
  2. Your moderator has been encouraged to contact you, and if you have any questions about your presentation, you are encouraged to contact your moderator directly. Moderator contact info is at http://bit.ly/PNCWA2019Moderators-RoomMonitors and they will also be referred to as “Session Chair” in  the conference program online at http://bit.ly/PNCWA2019BrowseProgram.
  3. Confirm that your presentation conforms to the time requirements. Sessions have 40 minutes for presentations which includes introduction, presentation, and questions and answers. Please use all of the allotted 40 minutes. If you have a Q&A after the session and there are no questions we strongly encourage you to keep the audience engaged for the full 40 minutes. Presentations which fall short of the 40 minute time run the very real risk of attendees not receiving any CEU credit!
  4. Prepare any handouts. You may have handouts for attendees...it is strictly optional. Historically, attendance may range from 20 to over 80 and higher.
  5. Create your presentation in PowerPoint 2018 in 4:3 format. All presentation should be labeled as follows: Presentation Title_Presenter Last Name_PNCWA2020
  6. Copy your presentation to a thumb drive that you can bring with you to the conference. If your presentation has special requirements, please be sure to bring your own laptop and any required adapters.
NOTE: All AV is furnished. Each session room has a furnished laptop with a standard configuration of PowerPoint 2018, a screen, a podium with a gooseneck microphone (non-portable), and a remote and laser pointer available. Important: If your presentation has any “bells and whistles” that might not run on a normal PowerPoint configuration you should bring your presentation on your own laptop as well as a thumb drive. You can test your presentation on a furnished laptop with a standard PowerPoint2018 configuration in the speaker ready room.

Prior to the Session:

  1. Come to the Registration Desk as soon as you arrive at the conference to pick up your nametag and/or register, and see that you pick up a “speaker” ribbon.
