2022 ASTA National Conference Speaker Policies and Terms



A completed Speaker Commitment Form is required from each presenter of an accepted session; for example, if your session will have five presenters, five forms must be completed. All presenters listed on accepted proposals should receive an acceptance email with a link to this form. Lead presenters: please verify with your co-presenters that they have completed the form.

Speaker Commitment Forms for in-person presentations and virtual presentations at the 2022 conference must be completed, or your session will be considered declined and may be removed from the program.

ASTA national policy states that all presenters and panelists must hold current ASTA membership, valid through the time of the ASTA National Conference. Presenters with expired membership may not present. Renew or join today.

Presenters, co-presenters, and panelists are responsible for:
  -  Conference registration and payment
  -  Session supplies
  -  Providing handouts
  -  For in-person presentations: audiovisual needs not provided by ASTA*
  -  For virtual presentations: audiovisual needs in order to pre-record your session

All presenters must register and pay for the conference no later than January 10, 2022, to be included in the official conference program.

Sessions must be content driven, may incorporate examples from multiple sources, and must stand on their own merit.

Pre-recorded sessions submitted to ASTA become property of ASTA and will be made available exclusively by ASTA, on ASTA's virtual platform and ASTA e-learning.

ASTA National Conference policy states that presenters will not use a session for self-promotion or the promotion of commercial products. Presenters using sessions for self-promotion or the promotion of commercial products will not be allowed to present at future ASTA conferences.

Please read the full ASTA Code of Conduct for Conferences, Meetings, and Events.

*For in-person presentations, the following audiovisual equipment will be provided in each room: microphone, LCD projector, and screen. Plug-ins will NOT be provided.
