Presenter requirements:

  • Must be a NACCE member. Not sure you're a member? Call 401.306.3131.
  • Presenters must have demonstrated expertise in their subject area and be prepared to teach and challenge conference attendees.
  • Bring a laptop to the session. NACCE will not provide laptops.
  • All presenters must register for NACCE2018. Discounts may be given to accepted presenters.

Session requirements:

  • Sessions should be dynamic, interactive, and action-oriented. We want all participants to leave with the confidence to transform newly acquired knowledge into action and take part in a stronger, larger network of like-minded colleagues.
  • All sessions must have an interactive activity to engage the audience.
  • All sessions should tell the “local” story, but it is critical to extract lessons learned so attendees leave each presentation knowing how to apply what they’ve heard and have the building blocks to make things happen.  By breaking your content into a “how to” format, you can help attendees acquire knowledge that is immediately actionable.
  • In preparation, here are the following components that make up each session:
    • Title of Your Presentation: Up to 10 words that accurately describe your session.
    • Presentation Description: Up to 50 words that describe your session for the conference. Please write in language that clearly, persuasively and accurately tells attendees what to expect from your session. Attendees should be able to readily determine the scope and level of the session and its appropriateness for their needs.
    • Full Presentation Description: Up to 250 word overview and outline of your session that explains in more detail the depth and breadth of your presentation. This information is a required element to ensure that your session is well understood by the reviewers.
    • Three Key Takeaways: Three anticipated learning objectives for participants.
