Presenter and Moderator Requirements

Presenter and Moderator Requirements
Time Period to Meet Requirements:  April 25 – July 18
NWSA opened conference registration on Monday, April 25 to provide 85 days to complete the presenter requirements. Below please find the steps you need to take based on your member status (Guest Login, Expired Individual Member, or Current Individual Member).

All presenters, including pre-conference presenters and all moderators, must have current (2016) individual membership AND be registered for the conference no later than July 18, 2016. Membership and conference registration are two separate processes and require separate fees. Individual members receive reduced conference registration rates. It is important that you log in to renew your membership using the same credentials used when submitting a proposal. Please do not create a new account or your membership and registration will not be linked to your proposal.

Institutional memberships include three complimentary student memberships, which can be used to meet the membership requirement for presenting students. Current institutional members should select three students and submit an individual membership form for each student, without payment, and send to the national office. Institutional memberships to do not include staff or faculty individual memberships. For more information about membership see the membership page.
 
Each presenting member of a panel, workshop or presentation, including the moderator, must meet these requirements. If you have organized a panel with community partners and activists, each presenter is required to be a current NWSA member and pre-registered for the conference by the deadline. In prior years, community partners have fundraised independently to attend, committed their own organizational funds to attend, or the university partner has funded their participation in the conference.
