Before the Conference

When will I know the status of my proposal?

We’ll let you know the status of your proposal in January 2020.

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

Yes. 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. You will need to make your own travel arrangements. Please book your hotel before the deadline to ensure the conference rate. Group blocks fill quickly. Register for the conference and once completed, you will be provided with a link to book your hotel.

Do I need to register for the conference?

Yes. College Board offers a discounted conference registration rate to all educators presenting at its events. An early registration discount will be available to you in addition to your presenter discount if you register before the early deadline.

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, speakers, and standard VGA 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.

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?

Yes, presenters will have access to post session presentations if you want to share with attendees. Your conference planner will provide more information regarding the procedure during the planning process.

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 conference the April after the current conference 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].
