Presenting for USLCA
Do you have an area of expertise or a topic you would like to share with your professional network? We would love to have you present as a speaker for USLCA!
USLCA strives to deliver a wide variety of topics on all aspects of lactation care and management from clinical techniques to the business principles of managing a private practice. These presentations can be a webinar or a longer workshop.
Not sure of what topic to speak on or need help through the process? We are here to help! We encourage speakers from all backgrounds regardless of prior speaking experience.
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. Webinars range from a minimum of 60 minutes to a longer workshop.
I’ve never presented before. Should I sign up?
Yes! Everyone has to start somewhere and we love helping both new and experienced speakers work through the process. Our Professional Development Coordinator and Nurse Planners can help with any questions you have along the way.
What is required of me as a speaker?
For each presentation, you will submit a speaker agreement form and a session detail form a minimum of six (6) weeks prior to your scheduled speaking date. These forms give us details on your presentation and solidifies your commitment to speak. You will also submit a draft of your slides and any handouts 2 weeks prior to your presentation.
Your presentation will be reviewed by our Professional Development coordinator to ensure it meets IBLCE standards and our ANCC Nurse Planners to ensure that it meets the standards for Nursing CEs. The details on what is required in order to meet those standards can be found here.
In the weeks leading up to your presentation we encourage you to work with our Marketing Manager to cross-promote the event. This could include social media posts, Instagram or Facebook Live events or a number of other marketing tools that will not only promote the educational event but also yourself and/or your business.
In the week before your event, you will schedule a tech check 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! The video will be displayed on the website for a minimum of 6 months up to 24 months, available only to those that purchase the session. Your honorarium will depend on how long you choose for the recording to be available.
Will those who purchase the webinar recording own my content?
No. USLCA’s webinar platform has built-in security measures for our presenter’s protection. Those who purchase a webinar will be given a link and a password to access their webinar through an online platform without file download. We take your content security very seriously.
What is the speaker compensation?
We would love to discuss our honorarium with you. Please contact our professional development coordinator for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would love to speak! 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, our Professional Development Coordinator will contact you to complete the next steps.
