Promote Your Participation!

AOPA is asking all presenters to sign a presentation waiver form as AOPA will be recording presentations this year. Your presentation will be available to AOPA members for future use. Visit AOPAversity to preview how the recordings are made available. If you submitted a free paper, you are not required to sign a form because this was completed through your online submission process.


Slide Template

Presenters are encouraged to utilize the National Assembly PowerPoint template. Using your own PowerPoint design template is permissible, however, the planning committee respectfully asks that all presenters limit the use of their corporate logo on their handouts and presentation slides to the first and/or last slide only. Template coming soon.


AOPA will be happy to copy and distribute your handouts. If you have a presentation handout you would like printed, please email to rgleeson@aopanet.org by August 7, 2020. Handouts will be distributed via the mobile app as well as printed. You are also welcome to copy and bring your own handouts. AOPA will not have access to equipment to make copies onsite.
