Presentation materials uploaded to this site will be available to all conference attendees two weeks before and for four weeks after the conference ends.
We strongly recommend that you create and post your presentation materials to better prepare those who might be attending your conference session.
A continued major goal for ASCD is to become environmentally and economically conscious. To this end we are making available to our presenters the opportunity to post conference presentation materials on a secure section of our website.
This service is provided to reduce the amount of materials that presenters need to print and transport to Boston, Massachusetts.
Only a single presenter should upload presentation materials. If you are presenting as part of a team, you should coordinate with your copresenter(s) before uploading session materials.
You will need your ASCD user ID and password to access the site. If you do not have this, contact ASCD's Service Center at 1-800-933-2723.
Log in to upload presentation materials
Please be sure your files adhere to the following guidelines:
During your session, please direct your attendees to download your presentation materials from www.ascd.org/empowerhandouts.
For attendees, there will also be instructions on-site at the Info Kiosk and Registration Desk about how to access presentation materials.
The portal for attendees to access presentation materials will open March 9. If for any reason you decide to update your presentation materials after March 9, please make sure to inform your session attendees during your session on-site, as this will help to minimize any potential confusion.
All electronic presentation materials will be posted two weeks before and for four weeks after Empower18. After that time period, presentation materials will be removed from the site.
Please be aware that you maintain responsibility for all content in your presentation materials. ASCD Empower18 conference staff do not edit any of your slides or pages, and you are responsible for obtaining any rights and permissions for content, such as, but not limited to, any graphics, text, or other content you did not create.
Bring your team and save when you register as a group!
Attendees must be 18 years of age or older to attend ASCD Empower18 and the Pre-Conference Institutes.
Special Announcement: ASCD's 2018 General Membership Election closes April 30.
