Notifications of acceptance/non-acceptance were emailed to all authors listed on proposals on July 14. They will also be accessible to all authors via the Author/Presenter Management Center.
This timeline outlines when authors/presenters can expect to receive notifications and the deadlines for critical tasks related to their presentation. You are responsible for being aware of these deadlines and completing all tasks (as applicable) by the due dates.
A personalized link for the Author/Presenter Management Center site was included in the disclosure notification each author (either presenting or non-presenting) received after their proposal was submitted. All authors should be logging into the Author/Presenter Management Center to check for important notifications, critical deadlines, instructions, and required agreements and disclosure forms.
All sessions are final as accepted. We are unable to honor requests for switches to an in-person or a virtual format, changes to session format, or date and time changes for in-person sessions once the schedule has been finalized. If, for some reason, you must withdraw your presentation, please send written notification to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Virtual presenters who fail to upload their presentations by the deadline will be administratively withdrawn from the ASHA Convention program.
Proof of full vaccination for all able and eligible individuals is required to register for the in-person ASHA Convention this year. Unvaccinated individuals may register, however, a negative PCR/molecular or antigen test administered onsite at the ASHA Convention will be required for participation. Registrant badges will not be mailed in advance to unvaccinated individuals; badges may only be picked up onsite after testing negative.
We strongly recommend that everyone who is able and eligible, regardless of their vaccination status, wear a mask while participating in all ASHA Convention activities. This policy is subject to change as we approach the event date and the pandemic continues to evolve, so please be prepared to wear a mask if required.
Presenters are expected to follow the general expectations for sessions offered at the ASHA Convention, as summarized below.
**IMPORTANT**: All authors listed on the proposal are required to complete the disclosure form and submit a bio by Wednesday, April 19, 2023, 11:59 p.m., Pacific Time. If ANY author does not complete their disclosure, the ENTIRE PROPOSAL will be administratively withdrawn. This is an important change to our policy, which previously stated that only the author would be removed.
This is a general statement that you agree to adhere to the principles, guidelines, and procedures as outlined in the Author Agreement when submitting a proposal to the Call for Papers. All authors must read, understand and agree to this statement for their proposal to be considered for review.
Per the Conflict of Interest Disclosure Policy, for consideration at an ASHA event, anyone presenting or listed as an author for a presentation is required to complete a disclosure indicating any financial or non-financial relationship related to the content of the session. This requirement from ASHA's Continuing Education Board is designed to promote transparency in the design, development, and presentation of courses offered for ASHA CEUs. The requirement aligns ASHA with current practices among other professions, particularly in the continuing medical education arena.
Authors should update their disclosures in the Author/Presenter Management Center if anything has changed (e.g., employment changes relevant to the content of the poster) since they initially submitted their disclosure during the Call for Papers.
All presenting authors (the actual presenters/speakers) must also agree to the Presenting Author Agreement for all proposals. Items in the Presenting Author Agreement specifically pertain to public presentation at the ASHA Convention, whether in person or via a pre-recorded session. Presenting authors must complete the Agreement by Wednesday, April 19, 2023.
All authors, whether or not they are presenting authors, involved in the development of content/presentations were required to provide information about their financial and nonfinancial relationships related to the content of the session as part of the ASHA Convention Call for Papers.
All authors/presenters must provide their financial and non-financial disclosures at the beginning of the presentation—both in writing (on a slide) and verbally. Ideally, each author/presenter will state their own disclosures, but if only one presenter is speaking, that individual can verbally state disclosures for all the authors/presenters.

We have created a special 2022 ASHA Convention PowerPoint template [PPTX] for presenters to use if they would like.
ASHA is committed to providing access to continuing education courses for participants with disabilities and other diverse learners. We encourage presenters to follow these guidelines and suggestions to ensure your entire presentation (lecture, discussion, visual aids, videos, and printed materials) is accessible to all participants, regardless of their learning styles or needs.
Presenters may also wish to familiarize themselves with ASHA's accessibility policy for providing ADA accommodations at its live events.
In this resource, two experts in adult learning present proven strategies to help presenters deliver more impactful learning experiences—ones that effectively support a learner’s ability to gain and apply new knowledge or skills. Designed to be used during presentation development, the course explores key takeaways from the science of adult learning (andragogy), highlighting methods that support learning and those that hinder it.
As a presenter of a session offered for ASHA CEUs, you may claim credit for your own session, earning the same amount of credit as participants. Read more about earning continuing education credit at the ASHA Convention.
