Presenter Information

Congratulations on your selection as a Critical Components presenter!

Your educational session will be one of many important topics discussed at Critical Components and will serve as a valuable resource to your colleagues in the field.
To assist in your preparation for Critical Components, we ask that you bookmark this site, as we will use it to remind you of important timelines and requirements for presenting.
Presenter Agreement Form: NACAC must receive a Presenter Agreement Form from each presenter participating in the session no later than January 15, 2014.
NACAC will publish the names of only those presenters from whom we have received agreement forms, and only those presenters will be permitted to present on-site in Charlotte.
Presentations/Handouts/Materials: Presenters must submit presentation materials on the NACAC template and Handouts to NACAC no later than April 28, 2014. Presenters may not deliver content from personal computers as a way to avoid the submission deadline date. NACAC highly recommends that presenters review the Presentation Tips document and, if presenting with multiple people, combine materials into one PowerPoint document and/or one Word document per session. Use the approved session title and remain consistant with the session description as you plan and organize your materials.  All presentations and handouts will be posted to a hidden website for participants to download, print and utilize during and after the conference. No changes will be allowed once your presentation has been received by NACAC. Computers in session rooms will be provided by NACAC upon which the relevant presentation will be loaded. 
For more information on the structure and expectations of the sessions, visit the Critical Components Presentation Tips.
Session Room Setup: Each session room will be set in crescent rounds for the audience. NACAC will provide a head table for two a podium with microphone, audience microphone, a screen and LCD projector.  If you have additional AV needs (including internet, audio, etc.), please send us an email as soon as possible.
Conference Registration and Housing: All presenters will be registered for the conference by NACAC. You will recieve a confirmation email shortly after the Presenter Agreement Form is recieved. Presenters can make hotel reservations at The Westin Charlotte through the online reservation portal
