AACRAO's 102nd
Annual Meeting


Presenter and Facilitator Guidelines

AACRAO's Annual Meeting is the premier professional development opportunity for our members. Participants can play an active role in the success of the meeting by presenting a session or by serving as a session facilitator. The specific responsibilities of program participants are outlined below.

Present at the Annual Meeting
The Call for Proposals for each Annual Meeting opens in February or March of the preceding year. Once you are selected as a presenter at the meeting, you will be notified of your acceptance by the Annual Meeting Program Committee. To help you plan your session, action items as well as guidelines for preparing your session are provided in the links below. 


FREE Online Presenter Workshop
Whether you are a novice presenter at AACRAO meetings or a seasoned colleague, we invite you to visit our new online Presenter Workshop. This workshop is offered as a free, interactive course site in AACRAO’s online learning management system. The site is monitored regularly by experienced presenters who are available to answer questions and provide assistance.  The course is open continuously, so you can visit it at your convenience to explore options for your session format to increase audience engagement, get design tips for presentation visuals, locate resources helpful to presenters, and obtain feedback on drafts of your session plans and presentation materials.  To visit the workshop:

Facilitator Guidelines
As a facilitator, you work with presenters to help make sure that their session runs smoothly. An added perk is that you can avoid long registration lines and register quickly at the presenter/facilitator check-in.
