Thank you for agreeing to serve as a speaker at AALL's Annual Meeting and Conference! It takes the coordination of countless details to successfully deliver the dozens of high-quality programs AALL members have come to expect. Your cooperation is key! In the spring, all presenters will be required to complete AALL's Speaking Commitment and Copyright Agreement, a simple, online form that outlines AALL's expectations of speakers. You can find the terms of the Agreement below.

  • You agree to comply with all program-related deadlines provided to you by AALL (and your program's coordinator, when applicable), including, but not limited to deadlines for handouts, A/V requests, etc.
  • During your presentation, you will not engage in any type of promotional marketing or selling of any product or service.
  • You will notify AALL's education manager immediately in the event that an emergency should prevent you from meeting your obligation as a presenter.
  • You agree to use the PowerPoint template and logos provided to you by AALL for any PowerPoint presentation and/or handout materials you may create for your presentation, and you agree not to use this template or these logos in any way except in connection with this or other AALL programs.
  • You authorize AALL to use your name, likeness, photograph, and biographical material for the promotion of the program and/or the AALL Annual Meeting. Please note: You may be contacted by AALL's Education and/or Marketing Department with opportunities for greater promotion of your presentation.

  • You must secure any necessary permission for copyrighted work which you do not own that is incorporated into your presentation or distributed/used in your materials as a handout or supplement to your presentation. You must provide AALL with information as to credit for all materials which were previously published or are subject to copyright ownership.
