Presenter & Volunteer Information
Data Summit presenters will have a unique opportunity to provide their expertise to conference attendees from across the state. If you are interested in presenting, please complete the Presentation Submission Form.
Presenters are expected to provide meaningful, interactive content for the full one-hour session time. Presenters are also expected to arrive 10 minutes prior to their session and arrive with access to their presentation(s) (jump drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.). Session facilitators will be in each room to manage presenters' onsite needs, start the session, provide time checks, and handout Act 48/45 session participation stickers at the conclusion.
We will no longer accept presentations after November 10th, 2023, Presenters will be notified by Friday, December 1st, 2023. Final presentations will be due to the PDE Data Summit Team by Friday, February 9th, 2024.
All volunteers will be formally notified of their selection by October 13th, 2022. Volunteers are required to participate in assignments Sunday evening through Wednesday. As a volunteer, you will be assigned to sessions individually or with a second volunteer as your partner, depending on the size of the breakout room.
The 2024 Data Summit will be at the Hershey Lodge & Convention Center, and the main assignments will be keynote and session facilitation, greeters, managing the information desk, and participating in daily feedback meetings. However, there are volunteer responsibilities prior to the Summit as well. Selected volunteers must virtually attend multiple Data Summit planning meetings. If you cannot attend a meeting or help with an assigned task, be sure to contact the Data Summit Team: RA-EDPDEDataSummit@pa.gov.
The Data Summit Team will work with volunteers and try to assign them to breakout rooms that they want to attend. If selected as a Volunteer, your registration is covered – breakfast and lunch are included Monday - Wednesday (lodging is not).
