#LitTX24: Information for Presenters

We’re so glad you’ll be presenting at the 2024 Literacy Texas Annual Conference! Thank you for sharing your skill and experience with your Texas peers.

This page has FAQs and other info for conference presenters, to help you prepare and plan. Use the quick links below to get answers to your questions, and to make sure we have everything we need to promote you and your session in the best possible way.

Presenter info quick links

Presenter Agreements

These agreements were part of the RFP submission process.

The lead presenter and any co-presenter(s):

Online Breakout Listings

We’re working on the program and we will be in touch with you as soon as we can, with final details about your session length, day, and time – we know you need to know that information to finish your planning! In the meantime, the schedule outline can be found here.

Each session will have its own personalized webpage with the information you submitted – you can see an example here. Those in-depth session descriptions will be linked from this page – alphabetically by title, by primary topic, and when finalized, by schedule timeslot, for easy browsing by conference attendees.

Contact us any time to make updates to your breakout listing – for example, to correct an error; add to the “Other info” section; or add PDFs of slides, handouts, or other materials (see below).

Presentation Materials & Handouts

We can host your handouts, slides, or anything else related to your session, on your personalized session page.

This is completely optional; the goal is to streamline the “will you share your slides?” “sure, let me get your email” back-and-forth that often happens at the end of a breakout session. Instead of sending your materials to multiple people, you can simply direct them to the page link where they can download what they need.

If you’d like to send your materials, please send documents (PDF only), or URLs (e.g., Google Drive or Dropbox links). Send as many attachments/links as you like: presentation slides + handouts, links to articles you referenced in your presentation, etc – anything relevant that you’d like attendees to have access to.

Current Headshot & Bio

We want to present you in the best possible light, with your most current headshot and bio.

If you have sent us a headshot in the past year or two and it hasn’t changed since then, we’re probably good to go. If you’re a first-time presenter or you’ve recently had new headshots taken, please send us an updated file.

The ideal file type is a PNG or JPG, square or rectangular, and at least 300px on its shortest side. If this file type is not available, please send what you can.

Your bio should be in the third person, and be a maximum of 1,500 characters.

Individual Conference Registration

We’d love to get all presenters registered in our system as conference attendees as soon as possible, so please go ahead and register as soon as you’re able. You can go directly to the online registration form here, and you can call the helpline if you have any difficulty registering: 972-930-5298. The early bird rate is good through July 7.

All scholarship codes have been sent, so if your program received scholarships, please check with the person who submitted the application to get your code.

For those who are attending the conference as an exhibitor as well as a presenter – registration codes associated with the individual exhibitor package will be sent to exhibitors by separate email, so that each person in your group can register as individual attendees. We’ll send more info along with the code.

Hotel

Hotel rooms at the special conference rate are still available and you can get your hotel reservations finalized here. We hope you plan to arrive Monday so you can attend the VIP Reception in the evening!
