When will I be notified about the status of my proposal?
We’ll let you know the status of your proposal on or before March 1, 2018.
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 for spelling and accuracy. Note that the title and description of your session may have been edited to fit College Board editorial style guidelines.
As a presenter, do I need to register for the conference?
Yes. All presenters will need to register for the conference and pay the discounted presenter rate.
Will I need to make my own travel arrangements?
Yes. You will need to make your own travel arrangements, unless you have been officially invited by the College Board to present a session or a workshop on behalf of the organization. In this case, your travel will be coordinated through our dedicated travel agency and you will receive detailed instructions on when and how to book your travel.
Will I need to make my own hotel reservations?
Yes. Be sure to reserve your hotel room early to get the conference rate.
May I bring family or colleagues with me?
Certainly; however, only those who have registered for the conference will be permitted to attend most conference functions. Companion tickets may be purchased for meals and some plenary events.
How many handouts should I prepare for my session?
We’ll send you an estimate (based on the number of registered attendees) in June. You are responsible for duplicating your own handouts and bringing them to the conference.
During the Conference
When I arrive at the event, do I need to officially check in?
Yes. Be sure to check in with the registration desk at the conference to get your name badge, conference program, and venue map, and to ask any last-minute questions you may have about your upcoming presentation. Your checking in also lets our event planners know that you’ve arrived.
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.
What should I do if I run out of handouts during my session?
Please be sure to prepare for the number of attendees we estimate for your session. You should also include your email address in the presentation so that attendees can request additional handouts from you in case of an unexpected shortage.
Will you post my presentation on the event website after the event?
Unfortunately, we are unable to post session presentations to our event websites. You may use cloud-based document sharing programs to share your presentation if you choose.
