Presenter Instructions

  • HANDOUTS: A QR code will be used for attendees to gain access to session handouts. Please provide a file/s to presenters@ncyi.org by September 30, 2022 with your session title as the file name. You are welcome to provide physical copies of your handouts to attendees at your own expense. The rooms will be set for 40-60 participants.
  • HOTEL RESERVATIONS: Presenters must make their own hotel reservations and are responsible for all other travel expenses.
  • CO-PRESENTERS: All communications regarding your breakout session will come to the Lead Presenter directly, and they will be responsible for sharing it with their Co-Presenter(s), if any. Also note the rate structure for Co-Presenters. If Co-Presenters are not added at the time of the CFP submission, they cannot be added in the future.
  • WI-FI: The convention center is equipped with Wi-Fi Internet that is complimentary for all attendees. However, we highly recommend designing your session so that you will not need internet access, since it can be slow or unreliable.
  • AUDIO VISUAL EQUIPMENT: All meeting rooms will be arranged theater style. Please note that the Conference will provide a LCD Projector, screen, A/V cart and power supply at no charge to you. However, the Conference will not be able to provide any other A/V equipment. You are responsible for providing your own laptop and dongle/appropriate adapter, if needed for your presentation. If your presentation requires sound for a video or sound effect please make the necessary plan to provide that equipment on your own. If you need additional audio visual equipment, please contact the convention center. Any arrangements you make with the convention center will be at your own expense.
  • NBCC / CEU Credits: Anyone without a Master’s degree or higher needs to have a sponsor (with these credentials) with them to co-present in their session. Otherwise, no CEU’s will be awarded to participants for your session.

The Virginia School Counselor Association has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 6606. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. The Virginia School Counselor Association is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.
