Information for Session Chairs

As a session chair, we ask that you:

  1. Check the program and serve as the main contact for the session with ASA staff in case any changes need to be made (re-ordering of speakers within session, withdrawing a speaker, etc.).

  2. Review presentations for length and visibility and bring concerns to the steering committee.

  3. Encourage speakers to upload their presentations to the online program prior to the start of the conference.

  4. Introduce the speakers at the beginning of the session. It is recommended to get speaker bios beforehand to assist in their introductions.

  5. Make sure each speaker begins/ends in the time allotted.

  6. Facilitate Q&A discussion after each presentation. This includes preparing questions in advance to spark the discussion if needed.

  7. During the session, encourage and remind attendees to go to the online program to fill out the session evaluation form by Sunday, February 23 at 12pm.
