Will any other conference-related presenter expenses be covered by CSBA?
No. CSBA is unable to absorb costs associated with presenting at conference.
Do I need to register for conference?
No. Presenters will receive a complimentary, non-transferable, one-day pass for the day of their presentation. If they wish to attend the entire conference, they must register at the full conference rate. Please contact Samantha Archey at firstname.lastname@example.org to register student presenters who are 18 years and younger. For more information, please visit aec.csba.org.
Will my session be pre-recorded?
Yes. All sessions will be prerecorded in the late-September to early-October and premiere virtually at AEC on either Thursday, Dec. 9, or Friday, Dec. 10. Sessions will repeat throughout the day, giving attendees multiple opportunities to participate in each session.
How many sessions will be selected for pre-recording?
A limited number of sessions will be selected for pre-recording. There is a limited recording capacity.
How will we schedule the recording?
The session moderator will receive an email between August and September to schedule the session recording appointment. Please note, all presenters must be present and available for the entire recording appointment.
What should I expect while recording?
AEC sessions for the virtual conference will be prerecording via a Zoom-like platform. Additional information will be emailed to the session’s moderator.
What is recommended for recording?

Can I add or change presenters to my session’s panel?
Yes. AEC Presenter changes will be accepted until August 31, 2020. Email email@example.com with the proposal number and presenter changes.
How will attendees be able to give feedback on my session?
While recording your session, please direct your attendees to complete the session survey located on the virtual platform. The session survey will appear minutes before the session is scheduled to end.
Who do I contact if I have a general question about my CSBA presentation?
Please direct all questions to Samantha Archey, Program Coordinator of Conferences, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who will my audience be?
The audience demographics for conference attendees are comprised of district governance teams; school board members, superintendents, high-level district and county office of education staff.
How do I share my handouts?
Please email all handouts with the corresponding session title. Handouts need to be a PDF or Word document and cannot exceed 10MB per document.
How will CSBA communicate with me regarding my session?
All of CSBA’s communications will be done through the email addresses given during the proposal submission process.
How can presenters record at the same time if we are in different locations?
It is not necessary for presenters to be in the same location since the prerecording will be done via a Zoom-like platform. Each individual presenter will need access to a computer camera and a microphone for the recording.
How can presenters communicate with attendees if sessions are prerecorded?
Attendees can ask presenters questions through “chat” during the session and presenters will be able to respond.
