Speakers Logistics


Every person who registers to speak is grouped by theme in one of the sessions (eg. Public Health, Economic Development, Creativity & Wellness, etc). If you registered to speak prior to March 23rd, please see the program to find out which day and room you are scheduled for. At the very end of the program is an alphabetical list of speakers. The letter after each name corresponds with the letters of the different sessions. Each speaker will have @ 20 - 30 minutes to speak. Contact the moderator of your session (listed under the title of each session) to find out at what time and for how long you are speaking. 



Even though the deadline has passed for registering to speak at the event and be in the printed program, anybody is still welcome to DIRECTLY CONTACT THE MODERATOR OF A SESSION, coordinator of an event, etc. and arrange to participate if OK'd by the person directly involved in coordinating that event.  The moderator contact information is included in the program, which is posted on the website (see link on home page for “ 2012 program”)
