Required Video Submission:

This year's conference will be virtual. As part of the submission requirements, we are asking you to submit a short video of you and any co-presenters. You may be asked to pre-record your session which will be due by the end of May. If your session is selected, you will receive detailed information by March 15th, 2021. For this proposal submission, here are some points to keep in mind:

1. Record your video on a platform that is comfortable for you to use, your phone, your laptop, or your desktop. Your recording does not need to be highly produced.

2. Video submissions must be a minimum of 1 minute and a maximum of 3 minutes and must include all the session presenters.

3. Introduce yourself and then tell us about your topic. We want to know why it is important.

4. What will your participants learn during your session?

5. What creative ways will you use to engage with your attendees in your session?

Be creative and have fun. This video is a way to sell your presentation.
