How do I participate as a speaker or presenter at the convention?
By submitting a presentation proposal. Visit Call for Presentations.

Why are the deadlines so far in advance of the convention?
The Program Committee needs time to review and select the hundreds of submissions as well as to assign dates and times for those that are accepted. We also have print deadlines for the Final Program that are well in advance of the convention.

I am presenting, why do I have to pay for my registration?
If we did not require the 600+ presenters and moderators to pay to attend we would have to scale back the production of the entire convention. Plus, presenters have access to the educational sessions, CEUs, the exhibit hall and special events.

Will sessions be recorded? How can I get a copy of a speaker’s presentation?
The recorded sessions can be purchased on-site from the IntelliQuest Media sales desk located on the meeting room level. After the conference, orders can be placed at www.intelliquestmedia.com. Session presentations will be available online following AudiologyNOW! 2011.

I’ve got an idea for a keynote speaker. Who should I contact?
Send your speaker ideas to Lisa Yonkers.

I would like to volunteer to be on the 2011 Program Committee, whom should I contact?
The committee assignments have already been set for 2011 but if you are interested in volunteering on the 2012 Program Committee please contact Lisa Yonkers and she can forward your name to the 2012 Program Chair.

I am presenting; do I need to register as well?
Yes. Everyone needs to register in order to get a badge.

I didn’t get my PreviewNOW! in the mail?
The Academy does not mail a Preview version of the program book. Attendees may view this information online using the itinerary planner and resources located on this Web site. Hard copies of the Final Program and daily books will be available on-site in Chicago.
