Introduction and Presenter Acceptance

Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 2019 Georgia and Southeast Region A4LE Summer Conference.  The 2019 theme for Georgia and Southeast Region A4LE Summer Conference is “Changing Tides - Expanding Beyond”. The theme stems from our new location at Jekyll Island. But it also reflects the unique challenges so often found in planning facilities where teaching methodologies seem to be constantly changing. In addition, today’s society is demanding a closer look into security and safety as a design feature. Therefore, a natural connection can be seen in an ever changing shoreline. ALSO, this year’s conference will be jointly held with the Southeastern Region Conference. We are looking forward to our best conference to date.  With the conference quickly approaching, it’s time to open our Call for Presentations.

Our goal is to provide presentations that challenge the industry to provide facilities that will provide Georgia Schools with high performance facilities that will withstand the ever evolving education environment.

All presentations should focus on educating school facility representatives and other attendees on new technologies, updated processes and procedures, innovative strategies, etc. that support our stated theme.  We particularly encourage joint participation with school facility representatives where real-life strategies have been implemented.  We encourage school facility representatives with interesting challenges and stories to share them with their peers through presentations, as well.  Sessions should not have a commercial or sales-oriented focus.

Sessions will be sixty (60) minutes in length, with a balance of time for presentation and group discussion. AV equipment will be available, if requested. All presentations will be converted to PDF files and posted to the Georgia A4LE website. All proposals for consideration must be submitted on or before February 28, 2019.

Each speaker, including all co-speakers agree to the terms below when submitting a presentation. 

I will participate in this program and understand my submission indicates my commitment to participate, my permission for GA4LE and its agents to use my name and to reproduce and distribute all or selected portions of my presentation in printed, audio video or electronic format. I hereby waive all right of payment for this license. 

I understand that GA4LE will provide a projector, screen, microphone, and speakers for the room. I further understand that I am required to supply a copy of my presentation on a portable drive to the AV team prior to my presentation. 

Additional equipment needs must be submitted and will be at my expense. GA4LE will make every effort to accommodate special requests; however, we do not guarantee it. I also understand there is a charge for a room change, additional equipment and that if I change the room from the original set up the charge will be at my personal expense.
