Proposals for the 2023 Annual Conference
Proposal notifications for the 2023 Annual Conference were sent via email on May 15, 2023. To view or check the status of your proposal, please visit the conference proposal system: https://lfp.learningforward.org/
If your proposal was accepted for this year's program, please login to the Conference Proposal System to electronically sign the presenter agreement to signify your agreement to present at the 2023 Annual Conference. Please note, the person who originally submitted the proposal is the only person with access to complete the presenter agreement. Once the presenter agreement is signed, a copy can be downloaded to share with co-presenters. The person who electronically signs the agreement is responsible for communicating the details of the presenter agreement with their co-presenters. Presenter Agreements must be completed by Thursday, May 25, 2023.
Learning Forward values presenters' participation throughout the conference. Presenters are required to register for the conference, at least for the day of their session, and pay any fees that are required. Early registration and member discounts are available.
All presenters are required to register by September 30, 2023.
Meeting room set up and audio-visual equipment
All preconference and concurrent session meeting rooms are set in rounds of 6-8. These rooms will be set with AV within an hour before the session start time.
Learning Forward will provide all preconference and concurrent session rooms with a screen, LCD projector, and wireless internet connectivity.
- Sessions under 45 participants will need to bring their own speaker for sound, if sharing video(s) or music.
- Sessions with 45 or more participants will be provided with an audio patch for their computer and one wireless microphone.
Please be sure that you can connect your laptop to VGA connection. Some laptops, such as Macs, require an adapter to connect and we cannot guarantee we will have enough in supply.
Any other AV equipment needed must be ordered through the conference AV provider. Associated costs are the responsibility of the presenter. More details coming soon regarding pricing.
Experience has taught us that WIFI can be a bit uncertain when it comes to sharing Livestream videos. To prevent any issues during your session, we strongly suggest you download videos to your laptop for sharing.
Roundtable/Table Talk sessions
Roundtable/Table Talk sessions are 45-minute presentations and discussions. They are excellent venues for giving and receiving feedback, engaging in in-depth discussions, and meeting colleagues with similar interests. Roundtable/Table Talk sessions will take place in a designated banquet room. Each session is limited to 10 participants, seated together at a single table. AV is not provided.
Onsite presenter room
While supplies last, the following items will be available to borrow from the presenter room, located near volunteer check-in.
- Chart paper
- Post-it notes
- Index cards
Learning Forward policy prohibits the sale of products and services during conference presentations. Presenters may not display or distribute brochures or order forms, talk about their services, promote themselves, or sell their publications; however, referencing or citing a presenter's own publications is appropriate.
