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. Waiver available online.

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 available online.


AOPA will be happy to upload your handouts to your session page. If you have a presentation handout you would like uploaded, please email to rgleeson@aopanet.org by August 9, 2021.
