AFCC strives to accept proposals from as many presenters as possible while also limiting presentations to one per person. This is not always possible; however, presenters submitting multiple proposals with different co-presenters often results in the rejection of one of the proposals, and therefore, the co-presenters.

AFCC offers a reduced registration rate for conference presenters, but is unable to reimburse for travel or related expenses. There is a limit of two proposals per proposed presenter.
