Before the Conference

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

You will hear from us regarding the status of your proposal in January 2019.

If my proposal is accepted, will I be able to review my session details?

Once your session is posted to the conference Program page, you should review all presenter information including spelling and accuracy of title and institution. 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 and hotel reservation?

Yes. You will need to make your own travel arrangements. Be sure to reserve your hotel room early to ensure lodging at the conference rate.

Do I need to register for the conference?

Yes. The College Board offers a discounted conference registration rate to all educators presenting at its events. All presenters and co-presenters must register and pay for the conference in order to present. An early registration discount will also be available to you in addition to your presenter registration discount if you register before the early deadline.

During the Conference

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.

Do I need to bring my own handouts?

Yes, bring your own handouts. You’ll be sent an estimate of attendees several weeks before the conference. Should you need more handouts, runners are on-site for copying needs.

How early can I arrive to check on my session room?

As early as 15–20 minutes before your session.

How are the rooms set up?

Theater style (seating only). No exceptions can be made.

How should I deliver my session?

Check out the presenter guidelines for suggestions on session delivery.

After the Conference

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

Unfortunately, we are unable to post session presentations to our event websites. Presenters may distribute presentations during the session or by other means, such as email or cloud storage. The College Board cannot facilitate the delivery of presentations to attendees. Remember to remove any proprietary information before distributing your presentation.
