Call for Presenters
Frequently Asked Questions
When will I hear about whether my proposal is accepted or not?
You will hear by July 31st, if not sooner, regarding the status of your proposal
How are the proposals reviewed?
Members of Oregon ON’s Conference Planning Committee and peer-learning and advocacy groups will review proposals.
Can I request a specific time for my session?
No, due to the complexity of conference scheduling, Oregon ON is unfortunately unable to accommodate specific requests for session scheduling. Extenuating circumstances will be given consideration, but Oregon ON cannot guarantee a solution. Please make sure you and your presenters are available on September 19th between 9am-4:30pm. If selected, primary presenters will be notified of the session time by August 31st.
Do presenters receive a discount in conference registration fees?
No. Presenters do receive complimentary tickets (up to 5 for panel sessions and 2 for roundtable discussions and lectures/trainings).
What if one of my presenters is coming only for this session and will not be participating in any other part of the conference?
It is possible for a presenter to just come to their session and then leave. However, there will be no nametag or conference materials provided and the presenter may not participate in any other part of the conference.
If I am using PowerPoint, am I required to bring my own computer?
Yes, you will need to provide your own laptop. Mac and tablet users should bring appropriate adapter cables for VGA and HDMI projector connections.
If I have handouts, am I required to bring copies to the conference?
Yes, you should bring at least 50 copies of your handouts to the conference (unless Oregon ON provides a lower or higher attendee count). Handouts are strongly recommended. We will also make copies of handouts and presentations available on the Oregon ON website if submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
