Information for All Presenters

The primary purpose of meeting presentations is to educate and enlighten our members who represent all segments of the workplace learning and performance community. Members include trainers, organizational development practitioners, human resource professionals, instructional designers, various managers and executives, technology vendors, and internal and external consultants.

We enjoy presentations with the following aspects: multiple presenters, effective audiovisual materials (e.g., PowerPoint presentation, web demonstration), handouts, (e.g., sample job aids, etc.).  

Please restrict the use of your organization’s logo and presenters’ contact information to the final page of visual materials. Recording of the presentation is prohibited unless otherwise approved prior. We do not permit presenters to survey our members prior to presentations. Post session feedback is available if requested. Our policy is not to reimburse presenters for expenses or provide honoraria for presentations. Meeting registration, which generally includes a light meal, is complimentary. Guests of presenters are expected to pay the meeting fee.

Guidance for Consultant Presenters

Please do not sell products or services during your presentation. Ensure that your presentation focuses on concepts, techniques, and best practices. We greatly prefer presentations that feature work done with clients. Presenters are not permitted to solicit member contact information directly. However, presenters are permitted to obtain contact information by means of a business card raffle of books, products, or other giveaways, as long as members are advised that their contact information may be used by you for marketing purposes.
