Forum Presenter FAQs

Thank you for your participation in the 2002 Innovations Conference. Your support is integral in making this conference successful. Please read the following information carefully. It contains important guidelines for your particular type of session and may answer questions you have about your presentation. Please notify the League immediately if there are any changes to your session, including changes in your copresenters.

Conference Registration

         All presenters are required to register and pay the conference registration fee. Registration and hotel information are currently available at the Innovations 2002 Travel/Hotel Information Page.

Presenter Check-In

         All key presenters are encouraged to check in at Speaker Support, fourth floor, Marriott Copley Place, as soon as possible to confirm technical and/or audiovisual support needs, rehearsal times, and other details related to their session(s).

Session Information


         Forums are one-hour sessions and are intended for an audience of approximately 30-50 people. Presenters are expected to use active learning techniques, to distribute materials, and to respond to follow-up requests for more information. Lecture-only presentations are strongly discouraged.

         Presenters of combined Forums must provide us with an updated session description and title reflecting the collaborative effort. This information is crucial for the completion and accuracy of the Conference Program.


         Handouts should be prepared prior to your arrival and designed to be read by the audience at their leisure, rather than during the presentation. While visual displays such as PowerPoint slides used during a presentation contain intentionally incomplete statements that supplement what the presenter is saying, handouts should stand alone as complete statements, incorporating information from the presenter's comments and the visual display.

Audiovisual Needs

         Forums are provided with a microphone, screen, and a video data projector. Additional AV equipment must be requested prior to the conference and is the financial responsibility of the presenter. You may order additional AV equipment through Strong Communications on the attached form. (Microsoft Excel required)

         Presenters may bring their own equipment, but should understand that only equipment provided by the conference organizers is supported by the Technical Support Team.

         Presenters who wish to purchase an Internet connection for their presentations need to contact the Marriott Copley Place at 617-236-5800.

Tips for Designing and Producing Your Presentation

We will be sending updated information throughout the next few months as the need arises. If you have any additional questions regarding your participation in the 2002 Innovations Conference, please don’t hesitate to contact Mary Houghton
