If your session will be videotaped, please read the following information carefully.

  • Speakers will be provided a Microphones, podium, sound, screen, laptop computer with powerpoint, audio sound, laser pointer and computer projector to use for their presentation.
  • Your presentation should be copied to the laptop on the podium. This is to insure that the presentation we receive matches the video.
  • We need the original Powerpoint file, not a copy that has been revised after your presentation.
  • Please name your presentation files appropriately, i.e., filenames should include the session code, session title, and presenter's name, as part of the filename. Here is an example of an appropriate filename: m-a1-session-title-presenter-name.ppt.
  • If a session presentation contains more than one Powerpoint, each should be named appropriately. It should be obvious in what order the Powerpoint presentations were given: m-a1-what-should-a-calarp-inspection-include-part-1-presenter.ppt and m-a1-what-should-a-calarp-inspection-include-part-2-presenter.ppt
  • It is very important that you use the file naming conventions above. Please don't name files similar to "mypresentation.ppt". Sometimes the presentation files and the video files get separated from each other and it's a very time consuming process to then match presentation files with video files.
  • Please upload your PDF version of your presentation under your account at calcupa.org. Powerpoint has a save as option to generate the PDF for you. Only the PDF versions of files or zipped files should be posted to the website.
  • Beginning this year, no one will be able to login during the daily conference hours so please post your presentations at off peak hours (before 6am or after 6pm), and at least a day before your presentation. Preferably, presentation should be posted before the first day of the conference to allow attendees opportunity to download them before the conference.
  • You can send email to all the attendees registered to take your class. Login to your account, click the SPEAKERS tab, and select the "Class Rosters" option. You will need to know the session code of your class. The class rosters will be generated on screen, and, also as an Excel file that you can download and manipulate further.
  • Speaker Ready Room is Marina 3 at the Marina Tower – Speakers can use the Speaker Ready Room to prepare, check emails, relax, or grab some ice water.
  • When giving your presentation, please make it obvious when you change slides, i.e., announce the slide change verbally and emphasize the title of slide. We often have to rely on verbal clues when slides are changed to map slide change to the video. Also, it helps to keep your audience's attention.
  • When the audience asks a question, please have the Session Moderator put the wireless mic on the person asking the question, and always re-state the question so everyone in the audience can hear. This is even more important when being videotaped because the audio may not record the question if too far away from the equipment.

Speaker Emergency –- If something comes up please let your coordinator know or call the conference manager, Sheryl Baldwin (Sheryl@calcupa.org), the CUPA office (530-676-0815) or by cell phone (530-363-0027).
