Before the Conference

When will I be notified about the status of my proposal?

We’ll let you know the status of your proposal in November 2019.

If my proposal is accepted, will I be able to review my session details?

Yes. Once your session is posted to the conference Program page, you should review all presenter information including spelling and accuracy of title and institution. The title and description of your session may have been edited to fit College Board editorial style guidelines.

Do I make my own travel and hotel arrangements?

Yes. You will need to make your own travel arrangements. Please book your hotel before the deadline to ensure the conference rate. Group blocks fill quickly. Register for the conference and once completed, you will be provided with a link to book your hotel.

Do I need to register for the conference?

Yes. The College Board offers a discounted conference registration rate to all educators who have been notified to present at its events. All presenters and co-presenters must register. An additional discount will also be available to you if you register before the regular deadline.

Will I be given a PowerPoint template to use?

You will be sent a template with full conference branding. Use of the template is suggested for uniformity, but not required.

During the Conference

What audiovisual equipment do you provide for a standard session or workshop?

Presenters will have access to an LCD or digital projector, screen, speakers, and standard VGA cables for a PC laptop. You must bring your own laptop, as well as your own connectors if you plan to use a Mac computer.

When should I arrive to check on my session room?

Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before your session is scheduled to start.

How are the rooms set up during the conference?

Theater style to maximum capacity (chairs in rows), plus a head table with seats for presenters. No exceptions can be made.

Will someone be available to help me if I need help in my session room?

Absolutely. Monitors are assigned to each session, and our AV team will check with each presenter before their session.

After the Conference

Can you post my presentation on the event website after the event?

Unfortunately, we can’t post session presentations to our event websites. If presenters want to share presentations with attendees, they should add a slide at the presentation end specifying who attendees should email to request a copy. Remove any proprietary information before distributing presentations.

Will the conference program be available online after the conference?

Yes, it will be on the website until registration opens for the next year's conference.

How soon after the conference can I submit a proposal for next year?

We typically begin accepting proposals for the next Prepárate conference approximately four weeks after the current one has ended. Please check our homepage for updates.
