Criteria for Selection

  • All conference presentations must provide high quality and comprehensive professional development for one or more of the following career pathways stakeholders: teachers, counselors, administrators, state or local CTE coordinators/directors, workforce and economic development professionals.

  • We want to be sure our attendees get the most out of your presentation, so we recommend that you limit the introductory/personal information and focus on your program/project and share your resources. NCPN attendees like presentations that share information they can implement immediately in their states / districts. (We realize that some presentations are motivational in nature and require more personal information.)

Presenters are encouraged to use innovative presentation styles to present their session.

Requirement for Presenting / Registration Fees

  • Registration Fees :
    • All presenters are required to register for the conference and pay the discounted presenter registration fee of $495.
    • A "presenters only" registration link will be sent to all presenters after presentations have been selected. (Please do not use the standard registration link.)
    • Presenters should wait to register until they have received notification that their presentation has been selected on May 15.
  • Arrange and pay for your own travel and lodging.
  • Agree to present on the day assigned by NCPN (October 11 or 12).
  • Provide handouts that include a copy of your PowerPoint or a summary sheet with an outline of your presentation.

Types of Presentations

All breakouts are 45-minutes in length. Since the time slots are short, please make sure your information is concise and gives attendees something they can take away from the presentation and implement immediately. Audience size may vary from 20 to 100 people.

    • LCD projector (for PowerPoints)
