In a roundtable session each presenter is assigned to a specific table where attendees will have the opportunity to have an in depth discussion with presenters.
APHA Presenter/Organizer/Moderator Policy:
- Presenters must be individual members of APHA to present.
- Presenters, session organizers and moderators must register for the meeting (full or one-day). Registration Info.
- All presenters must be registered by the Advance Registration Deadline.
- Speakers who fail to show up for their scheduled presentations without previously notifying the program planner of cancellation will not be permitted to present papers or posters at any APHA-sponsored meeting for two years following the "no-show".
Presenters can upload their handouts in PowerPoint or PDF format at no charge prior to the Annual Meeting. Handouts will be a permanent part of the Online Program. Handouts can be uploaded in the Speaker's Corner (check your acceptance email for a direct link to YOUR PERSONAL speaker's corner).
Handouts can be distributed to attendees (bring at least 25 copies). Papers and materials for your presentation should be sent ahead to your hotel, addressed to your attention and labeled "Hold for Arrival" or brought with you. Do not send any materials directly to the Convention Center.
APHA hires room monitors who are responsible for double-checking the room set-up and the audiovisual equipment prior to the starting time of your session. They will also take an official count of attendance at the meeting and check that attendees have appropriate name badges. Because the monitors are assigned to several sessions at the same time, they are not able to remain in the room throughout the session. If there is a problem, you can find a room monitor in the hallway near your session room.
