NACSW Convention 2019 Presentation Submission


Presenter Agreement

NACSW's convention niche, consistent with our association mission, is to provide workshops and poster sessions that equip conference participants to ethically integrate Christian faith and professional social work practice.

I signify my agreement to the following: (please check all to continue)

If my/our presentation proposal is accepted, I/we agree - unless a bona fide emergency occurs - to:

  • Be present at NACSW's Convention 2019 in Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Register for the convention by no later than October 7th, 2019 (at my/our own expense at the usual convention rate - acknowledging that no honorarium will be paid for my/our presentation)
  • Make my/our presentation at the time selected by the Convention 2019 planning committee between November 8-9th, 2019
  • Provide at least 25 copies of handouts at no expense to the convention.

I understand that if I/we do not register for the convention by October 7th, 2019, my/our presentation may have to be removed from the convention program.

NACSW will provide a LCD projector (for PowerPoint presentations) and a screen for all workshop presenters at no cost. We are not, however, able to provide laptop computers, so please bring your own laptop if you wish to use a LCD projector in the workshop room for your presentation.

If I want to use any equipment for my presentation other than a LCD projector and screen (for example, laptop speakers, CD player, connection to the Internet, dry erase board, flip chart, etc.), I understand I will have to contact the hotel AV department directly and make arrangements with them to pay for this equipment at my own expense.

I would like my Presentation to be considered for one or more of the following Formats: *

Either a workshop presentation or a poster presentation
I understand that selecting this option increases the chances of my proposal being selected.

Workshop Presentation Only
For examples of workshop sessions, go to: Workshop Examples

Poster Presentation Only
Presenters summarize their presentation information in visual representations for attendees to browse and to facilitate more informal discussion. NACSW will provide easels, and poster presenters bring information mounted on poster boards and/or handouts. NACSW is not able to provide poster boards. For examples of poster sessions, go to: Poster Examples.

 

If I am interested in my proposal being considered for a workshop presentation, I would prefer the following length of time

The majority of workshop presentation sessions will be 60 minutes long. NACSW has only a limited number of 90 (1.5 hour) and 120 minute (2 hour) workshop slots, which are more competitive.

I would prefer presenting a 60 minute (1 hour) workshop
I would prefer presenting for a 90 minute (1.5 hour) session

I would prefer presenting for a 120 minute (2 hour) session
Any length of time (60 minutes, 90 minutes, or 120 minutes) would work for me

NACSW will make every effort to accommodate the length of time you have requested for your workshop session, although it reserves the right to make the final decision regarding the session's length based on the needs of the overall program.
