  4. Click Open or Edit under the Action column.

Presenter Name, Title, Institution, and Email Updates

All individual presenter details for both coordinating and supporting presenters (name, title, institution) are pulled from the NASPA member database. These details may be updated directly by the individual presenter on under Edit My Profile. Updates will be pushed from the NASPA member database to the Annual Conference program database at a later date.

Preparing for Your Session

The #NASPA23 PowerPoint template will be available to download soon! All presenters are encouraged to use this template and the presentation resources contained within it as you develop slides for your session.

Virtual Experience presenters will also receive details about navigating the virtual space and the technology tools that will be available to facilitate and enhance your session.

Presenter Training, Resources, and Support

The Conference Leadership Committee is hard at work developing presenter resources to help you plan your session, whether you will be presenting in Boston or as part of the NASPA Virtual Experience. 

A present support Discord community will also launch later this year as a space for you to connect with your fellow #NASPA23 presenters. We hope you will join your fellow presenters in this collaborative online space!
