Presenters

WILL LIVE VIRTUAL SESSIONS BE RECORDED AND AVAILABLE POST-CONFERENCE?

All sessions presented live during the virtual conference will be recorded and made available to registered participants for one year post-conference. Presenters are encouraged to review their presentations for sensitive and confidential information before submission, as recordings will not be edited to remove this information.

WHY DO PRESENTATIONS NEED TO BE PRE-RECORDED IF THEY ARE PRESENTED LIVE DURING THE CONFERENCE?

We are asking for pre-recorded presentations to avoid real-time technical challenges. In an effort to provide as seamless of an event as possible, pre-recorded presentations will help prevent concurrent sessions from running over time. 

All sessions will be managed by an AV technician. The technician will open and close the session, play pre-recorded presentations, administer live polls, and control when speakers are shown on the screen. In order to do this successfully, session leads will complete a template with session details and timing. 

Do presenters need to register?

All presenters are required to register the virtual conference. We encourage presenters to register for the full conference but if presenters are unable to participate for all three days, discounted daily rates are available. 

The presenter daily rate is $100 and grants access to the conference sessions and networking features on the day of your presentation, post-conference materials and the presentation gallery. 
 
To register at the presenter daily rate, contact the CPHA Conference department
