Before the Conference

When will I be notified about the status of my proposal?

You will hear from us regarding the status of your proposal in August 2018.

If my proposal is accepted, will I be able to review my session details?

Once your session is posted to the conference Program page, you should review all presenter information, including spelling and accuracy of title and institution. The title and description of your session may have been edited to fit College Board editorial style guidelines.

Will I need to make my own travel and hotel arrangements?

Yes. Please book your hotel in advance of the deadline. Group blocks tend to fill quickly. Visit the Venue page to make your reservation.

Do I need to register for the conference?

Yes. The College Board offers a discounted conference registration rate to all educators presenting at its events. All presenters and copresenters must register and pay for the conference in order to present.

Will I be given a PowerPoint template to use?

You will be sent a template with full conference branding. Use of the template is suggested for uniformity, but not required.

During the Conference

What audiovisual equipment do you provide for a standard session or workshop?

Presenters will have access to an LCD or digital projector, screen, and standard VGA or HDMI cables for a PC laptop. You must bring your own laptop, as well as your own connectors if you plan to use a Mac computer. If you have additional AV needs, let your College Board liaison know. Remember, internet access is not a standard provision at our events and requests for access will be considered but are not guaranteed approval.

How will my room be set up?

All session rooms are set theater style (chairs in rows) based on the capacity of the room, plus a head table with seats for presenters. 

Will someone be available to help me if I need help in my session room?

Absolutely. Monitors are assigned to each session and our AV team will check with each presenter before their session.

After the Conference

Can you post my presentation on the event website after the event?

Unfortunately, we’re not able to post session presentations to our event websites. You’re free to share materials with session attendees—remember to remove any proprietary information before distributing your presentation.

Will the conference program be available online after the conference?

Yes, it will be on the website until registration opens for the next year’s conference.

How soon after the conference can I submit a proposal for next year?

We typically begin accepting proposals for the next regional forum the April after the current forum has ended. Please check our homepage for updates.

If you have a question about presenting that isn’t answered here, contact your College Board liaison or email [email protected].
