Presenter Guidelines

 

Congratulations, and thank you for presenting at the 2022 Strategic Enrollment Management Conference.

We are appreciative of you lending your professional knowledge to the AACRAO community. Please note the following tips, reminders, and resources as you prepare for the SEM Conference:

  • Uploading Presenter Materials

    Presenters must upload their presentation materials to the Production Resource Group (PRG) Upload Center website. The deadline is October 28 (submission link coming soon).

    If this is your first time uploading materials to the PRG Upload Center website, you will need to sign up for an account. If you believe you already have an account with the PRG Upload Center and have forgotten your login or password, please contact meetings@aacrao.org for assistance.

    For technical questions or assistance with uploading materials, please email the AACRAO Meetings Team at meetings@aacrao.org.

  • Powerpoint Presentation Template

    Download the AACRAO branded PowerPoint template you may use for your session handouts.

    When building your presentation, ensure you include any external files utilized in the same folder as your presentation (e.g., movie files). To ensure the success of your presentation, remember to make a backup copy of your files.

    Fonts: We can only supply fonts included in the base installation of Windows. Using any font other than these requires embedding them into your PowerPoint presentation. For information on embedding fonts, see below. We suggest using the fonts such as Open Sans, Times New Roman, Arial, and Tahoma. Using fonts not included in Windows can lead to words that bleed into graphics or bullets that may be the wrong style. You can embed the fonts into your presentation by following these steps:

    • Office 2003: On the File menu, click Save As. On the toolbar, click ToolsSave Options, and select the Embed TrueType Fonts check box. To embed all the characters in the font set, select Embed All Characters.
      *Note: If you plan to have others review and edit your file, it's best to embed the complete font set, though doing so creates a larger file.
    • Microsoft Office 2007: Click the Office button and then PowerPoint Options. Select the Save Tab and check the box to Embed Fonts in the file
    • Office 2010 and 2013: Click File and then Options, Select the Save Button and check the Embed Fonts box.

    *Note: PowerPoint 2011 for Macs and other Mac versions of PowerPoint cannot embed fonts

  • Google Slides Template

    Access the AACRAO branded Google Slides template you may edit for your session handouts here. Once you follow the link, click "File" in the top left corner and select "Make a copy" to edit your presentation.

  • APPLE Products Users

    If you are creating your presentation on an Apple computer, please be aware of the following issues.

    • Movies: It is preferable to have your video files converted to .avi's to allow for proper operation in PowerPoint for Mac or PC.
    • Pictures: Use standard image formats that are cross-platform, such as JPG, PNG, and GIF.
    • Fonts: Use standard cross-platform fonts such as Open Sans, Times New Roman, Arial, and Courier.
    • Animations: Use simple entry animation effects, such as fly-in/out, appear, and dissolve. 

       

  • PREZI Users

    We do allow presenters to use Prezi if desired.

  • Speaker Lounge

    All presenters must check into the Speaker Lounge at least 4 hours before presenting. All meeting rooms will have presentation computers that network to a central computer located in the Speaker Lounge. Presenters are encouraged and expected to bring their own memory device to the Speaker Lounge, where they can review their presentations or make any last-minute changes.
