UM Carey Law | Event Planning - Speakers and Presentations

Speakers and Presentations

  • Assign a primary contact for your speakers. This contact should be able to determine the particular technology needs of each speaker and be available to answer speakers' questions.
  • If you plan to record your event, each speaker should sign a release form prior to your event. Submit completed forms to Michele Ondra, Library Room 2203, or Media Services, Room 308.
  • Do your speakers plan to use Powerpoint? Media Services recommends organizing and saving PowerPoint and other computer files to the law school network in advance.
  • Do your speakers plan to work from a PC or Mac laptop?  If so, be sure to inform media services of the specific adapter so we can connect to a VGA projector.  If your speakers plan to bring files to the law school, find out whether the file will be saved to CD/DVD, USB or the cloud.
  • Will any computer presentations have sound? Include video? Will any speakers play a Videotape? DVD? CD? Embedded computer audio? Letting Media Services know about sound and video requirements in advance will help your event run smoothly.
  • Determine whether your speakers will need document cameras, overhead projectors, easels, dry-erase boards or any other specialized equipment. Requests for specialized equipment should be made in advance of the event to ensure that the equipment is available.
