Presenters should arrive no later than 2 p.m. to prepare their World Café “round table” and to check their flash drive. We encourage you to have one team member at the table at all times.

PART 1 - Ignite Sessions
From 2:15 - 4:00 p.m., all presenter(s) will provide a 10 minute Ignite Session.  (http://www.ignitetalks.io/ ).  This is not a time for question and answers and there is time for transition between teams.  Please bring your ignite presentation on a flash drive and pre-set it for the 10 minute time limit (it should move automatically without a clicker to advance). NEAFCS will provide a projector, screen, laptop, podium and microphone in each room. After your Ignite Session, presenters should return to their World Café’ round” tables. Please test your flash drive between 1:30 – 2:00 in the room you'll present in and arrive 10 minutes before your Ignite presentation.

PART 2 - World Cafes 
From 4:00 - 4:30 p.m., presenters will staff a table.  During this time, individuals will be encouraged to stop by and visit for a short amount of time (5 minutes or so) to chat about your project. This should be an interactive time.  If you have a hands-on portion of your program, please bring props. Please bring a handout, no larger than 8.5 X 11 with your contact information and the highlights of your session for individuals to take.  A bell or horn will sound every 5 minutes to encourage individuals to move on to the next table.  NEAFCS will provide one (1) table with chairs for this portion of the presentation. The World Café transitions will only occur during the last half hour of the Ignite/World Cafe presentation time. (see schedule below)

PART 3 - Poster Presentations Only
If your acceptance letter says “POSTER”, please also bring a poster that will be displayed throughout the NEAFCS Annual Session for the times listed above in the Showcase of Excellence Guidelines. Posters do not need to be staffed during the conference, but must have contact information for at least one presenter in case an individual has questions.
