Uploading PowerPoint Presentations
To alleviate any onsite problems, Oral Session presentations must be uploaded in advance.
APHA suggests that presentations be made in PowerPoint. Reference the accessiblility guidelines when creating your presentation.
If you are using materials in your presentation (pictures, charts, graphs, video, etc.) that are not original work, seek permission from the original source and cite the source.
How to Upload Your Presentation
- Log in to the Speaker's Corner and follow the instructions. A direct link to your personal Speaker's Corner can be found in your acceptance email.
- During the upload process, you will be asked for permission to record your presentation. PowerPoint and voice recordings are packaged and sold as E-ssentialLearning. You do not need to be recorded. However, presentations must be uploaded in advance even if you do not want to be recorded.
- Save a copy of your presentation on USB/Flash Drive to bring with you to the Annual Meeting in the event of technical difficulties.
If you did not submit your presentation in advance or have changes to make to your previously submitted presentation, take a saved copy of your presentation and report directly to the Speaker Ready Room at least 16 hours before the start of the session. You must use the Speaker Ready Room in the property where your presentation is taking place.
If you miss the 16 hour deadline due to a tight travel schedule stop by the Speaker Ready Room as soon as possible to receive instructions on how to upload your presentation.
