GUIDELINES FOR PRESENTATIONS
Presenters will be responsible for providing their own laptop for the session. If the laptop is a Mac, the presenter must bring a VGA adapter to connect to the projector. Each session will be set up classroom style and equipped with a head table, projector, screen, podium and microphone. Presenters may request any of the following AV equipment:
- Flip chart and markers

NJJA strongly encourages presenters to provide reference resources for replicating efforts (i.e. sample memorandum of agreement, agency policy or regulation, legislation, toolkits, etc.). Presentation materials will be provided to participants electronically prior to the conference. Speakers will be required to submit materials for inclusion by March 31, 2018. Speakers should arrive 20 minutes prior to their session to ensure all equipment is functioning, etc.
Proposals will be selected based on:
- Relevance to current juvenile justice issues in Nebraska;
- Added value to the conference as a whole, so that a variety of topics/viewpoints/approaches are represented;
- Whether the presentation topic has the potential to be replicated through other communities;
- Ability to provide participants with applicable and tangible skills for implementation in day to day work;
- To what extent the proposal provides for active discussion and interactions with the participants;
- Whether the presentation brings new/fresh content to the NJJA audience;
- Involve efforts to meaningfully partner and engage with families and youth;
*All guidelines for submission must be followed as stated above or your proposal may be rejected for lack of information.
