Presenter types

Through the proposal submission process, you will be asked to designate different roles for those involved with each proposal. Descriptions for each role are listed below. We recommend that you take time to become familiar with the descriptions before starting the online proposal system.

Each panel must include at least one (1) board member, superintendent or other staff from a current CSBA member district or county offices of education. Panels may have a total of up to four (4) presenters (including the moderator). Each proposal must have a designated submitter and moderator at minimum. CSBA will prepare complimentary one-day passes for all presenters and moderator of accepted proposals.

Submitter
This person will not be considered part of the panel unless designated as a moderator or presenter. Only one (1) submitter per proposal will be allowed.

Moderator
The moderator oversees the workshop development, communicates with CSBA staff, coordinates pre-conference preparations and acts as facilitator during the actual session on-site. Following the acceptance letter to the submitter, the moderator will become the main point of contact for all conference related correspondence between presenters and CSBA staff up to and through the Annual Education Conference. The moderator will be published in all CSBA web and print conference materials along with the other presenters. If your proposal is accepted, please note that CSBA sets each session with seating for up to four (4) total presenters, including the moderator. Only one (1) moderator per proposal will be allowed. The moderator may also be the submitter.

Presenter
A presenter is a panelist. If a proposal is accepted, CSBA sets each session for up to four (4) total presenters, including the moderator. CSBA will have initial correspondence with the presenters regarding acceptance of a session. Further details about the session will be sent to all presenters and the moderator in the summer and fall. Presenters are encourage to funnel all communication with CSBA through the moderator, including requests for specific audio-visual needs and changing descriptive paragraphs regarding the presentation.
