2020 Mission Leaders Conference Presenter Helps
We thank you for the important role you will play in the 2020 Mission Leaders Conference. This page was created to provide you with all the information you will need to know as a presenter at Focus 2020: The Great Commission: What is Our Goal? We will update content from time to time so please save this link and refer to it for future questions.
Workshop Information – Form A
This form must be completed by every presenter and submitted by March 20th. You will be asked for your bio (125 words or less), a photo of yourself and the track in which you will be presenting. If you indicate that you are the Primary Presenter you will be asked to complete the workshop description (125 words or less) including learning objectives and primary audience as well as a few other details. This form has a “save and continue” feature. At the bottom of the form, you can select SAVE or SUBMIT. By selecting save you will be provided a link to return and continue editing the form before submission. Once the form is submitted, you will not be able to return to it so we suggest you submit the link to your track leader for approval before submitting. If edits are needed, they can be made before submission. If you are presenting alone, you are the Primary Presenter. If you are presenting with others, 1 individual must be designated the Primary Presenter.
Workshop Room Set-Up
Workshop rooms will be set in either classroom, theater or banquet seating. Each workshop space will be equipped with a podium, table, and chair at the front of the room as well as a screen and projector. A lapel microphone will be provided if the size of your workshop so indicates. If you plan to show a video and require sound amplification or if you require any additional equipment such as additional mics, chairs, paper tablet and easel, please use Form B to submit these requests no later than July 24th.
Once you submit Form A, you will be registered by our Conference Team. You will not need to register yourself. Your conference registration is complimentary but not any pre-conference or add-on sessions. To register for one of these please click here.
For the first time in many years there will not be a bookstore at the 2020 Mission Leaders Conference (MLC). However, Missio Nexus values you as an author, so we are offering an alternative option to spotlight your new or recent book.
The Missio Nexus staff will supervise a book table of recently published books that have been authored by an attendee at Focus 2020. If you are interested in having your book displayed for sale, please download the following document for more information: Sell Your Book
