Presenter FAQs

beginning of content:

Before the Conference

When will I be notified about the status of my proposal?

We’ll let you know the status of your proposal on or before June 2, 2017.

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. Email us with any changes. Note that 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 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 (such as an exam results session or a professional development workshop). 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.

Do I need to register for the conference?

Yes. All presenters and copresenters must register and pay for the conference in order to present; however, the College Board offers a discounted conference registration rate to all educators presenting at its events. You can get an additional discount if you register before the early bird registration deadline.


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 check-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. Remember, internet access is not a standard provision at our events and requests for access will be considered but are not guaranteed approval.

Will you post my presentation on the event website after the event?

Unfortunately, we are unable to post session presentations to our event websites due to the exorbitant cost of digital accessibility. You may use cloud-based document sharing programs to share your presentation if you choose.
