Program decisions are now available!

Coordinating presenters may log in to the program submission portal to view program decisions and peer review comments.

NASPA Virtual Experience: Pre-Recorded Session Presenters

If your session has been accepted for the NASPA Virtual Experience, the recording of your session will be due on January 12, 2022. Recording instructions and resources will be available in November.

However, you can get started planning your content now! Your session will benefit from advance planning, particularly if you have co-presenters. Start finalizing your content, develop a plan for engaging your audience through the chat, plan some time to practice, and set aside plenty of time to complete the recording itself.

Presenter Training, Resources, and Support

The Conference Leadership Committee is hard at work developing presenter trainings and resources to help you navigate your session, whether you will be presenting at the place-based event in Baltimore, or as part of the NASPA Virtual Experience. There will be dedicated support for presenters of pre-recorded sessions for all aspects of the recording process, and presenters of sessions in Baltimore will receive guidance on COVID safety.

A #NASPA22 presenter Facebook group will also launch later this year to create a community where presenters can ask questions and share resources. We hope you will join your fellow presenters in this collaborative online space!
