Presenter & Volunteer Information

Presenter Information

Data Summit presenters will have the unique opportunity to provide their expertise to all LEAs across the state. Submit presentation proposals through Friday, December 13, 2019. If selected, you agree to share a copy of the presentation for posting on the Data Summit website, Mobile App, and the DQN website, as well as being photographed during the summit.

Selected presenters will receive a discounted registration fee of $150 (Sunday keynote/dinner not included) that two presenters per session can take advantage of. Additional presenters beyond the first two will be responsible for the full $350 registration fee. The presenter fee does not include the Sunday night keynote and dinner, but all other summit-provided meals and breakout sessions are included (lodging not included).

Presentations run for one hour; please bring along a copy of your presentation on a flash drive and allow time for Q&A at the end of your session.

Presenters will be notified by Wednesday, January 8, 2020, and final presentations will be due to the Pennsylvania Department of Education by Friday, February 28, 2020.
