Recommendations for Vir​tual Fall Conference Presenters

If your session was selected to be a part of Virtual Fall Conference it will be live streamed to participants across the country. Virtual participants will have many of the same benefits as those attending in person, but if you want to make sure they have the best experience possible, check out our Tips for Engaging the Virtual Audience​

Room Set & Equip​ment
