Presenter Resources

Congratulations on having your session accepted for #ACPA19! Below you will find helpful information for presenters.

General Resources

Over the next couple of months, blog posts, webinars, microsessions and other resources will be posted to address your success as a presenter at #ACPA19.

This resource was developed to help ACPA design program sessions, meetings, materials, and other ACPA19 experiences that are accessible to all participants. The document includes information on space layout, presentation design, facilitation, and handouts and other distributed materials.

#ACPA19 PowerPoint Template

{Download}

All presenters utilizing a PowerPoint slide deck should use the template as it includes important information for session attendees.

After downloading the PowerPoint file, consider the following:

  • Enter the title of your session into the title slide. This should match the title you included in the Program Proposal.
  • Copy and paste slides from an existing presentation where the slide says “Insert your presentation” or build your PowerPoint starting from that slide.

If you choose to use your own PowerPoint template, include text from the following slides into your presentation:

  • Land Acknowledgement – located after your title slide and before session content
  • Inclusive Language – located after your Land Acknowledgement slide and before session content
  • Insert Alt Text on images

  • Session Evaluation – located at the end of the presentation.

Presentation FAQ

How can I log back in and update my proposal submission?

Your email serves as your username. Upon saving your proposal, you are provided a password that allows you to log in and make changes to your submission. Use this link to log back in.

Why can’t I add an additional presenter? It says the user cannot be found.

If you are trying to add another presenter and they are not found in the system, you simply have to “register” them as a presenter. Once this is complete, it will take you back to your proposal.
