Do you or a colleague have an area of expertise or a presentation topic you would like to share with your professional network? USLCA invites you to present your topic as a webinar.
As your professional association, USLCA strives to deliver a wide variety of topics on all aspects of lactation care and management from clinical technique to business principles of managing a private practice.
What does it mean to present?
By signing up to present you are agreeing to be available during a mutually selected date and time to present your topic via our online webinar platform. Most presentations follow a narrated PowerPoint style but can be adapted based on your request.
What is required of me?
For each presentation, USLCA asks that you submit your slides and any handouts 2 weeks prior to the event.
The week of the event you may elect to schedule a test run with USLCA’s Professional Development Coordinator to ensure comfort with the technology.
The day of the event you will sign-on to the platform 15 minutes in advance to test all equipment.
During the event we ask that you choose a location that is free of distractions to ensure a high quality presentation for those that have signed on. We also recommend building in a little time for Q&A at the end of your presentation as we invite the audience to submit their questions via chat throughout the session.
After the event, you’re done! If you elect to allow USLCA to record your presentation, the video will be displayed on the website for up to 24 months, available only to those that purchase the session.
How do I sign-up?
Start by picking a topic, presentation description and 3-5 references from the last 5 years. When you are ready to submit that information, fill out the online abstract. Once your abstract is reviewed and accepted by our planning committee our Professional Development Coordinator, Molly Peterson, will contact you to complete the next two applications. The first form is to enter the information about your presentation, and the second will be to enter your personal information about you, as a presenter.
What is the speaker compensation?
USLCA is proud to offer up to $150 honorarium for webinars!
FAQs about presenting:
I’ve never presented before. Should I sign up?
Yes! Everyone has to start somewhere and our Professional Development Coordinator is available to walk you through the process. Please contact Molly Peterson with questions and concerns.
If I agree to record my presentation, will those who purchase the webinar own my content?
No. USLCA recently updated our webinar platform to increase security for our presenter’s protection. Those who purchase a webinar will now be given a link and a password to access their webinar through an online platform without file download.
If you have further questions about presenting a webinar please contact USLCA’s Professional Development Coordinator, Molly Peterson.
