Speaker Manual & Agreement

Session Formats and Speaker Preparation

All sessions will be presented live, in-person. Each session room will be set with a computer, projector, screen and sound system. If you have special AV requirements for your presentation, you must notify the STC’s Conference Committee by Tuesday, 31 March.

In Spring 2024, we will also provide a speaker orientation that includes tips for making your presentation as effective as possible. A specific date and time will be announced later.


To help us better serve members year after year, we ask all conference attendees to evaluate their experience at the program, which includes rating each session they attend. Speaker evaluation results will be made available to you after the conference has ended.
