Before you jump to the online resources, here are some guidelines to keep in mind as you craft your presentation:

  • Have fun. Take risks. Don’t be afraid to try something new. You are among friends.
  • Include at least one interactive component in your presentation. Q&A at the end is mandatory. What more can you add to the attendees’ experience?
  • It is strongly recommended that you provide a takeaway for your audience, and it can be anything from a white paper or an infographic to a follow-up work list or reading list (your slides don’t count as a takeaway). Your takeaway will be ADRP will make it available to attendees after your presentation.
  • Use best research and reporting practices. Openly cite any sources (including any images used in your slides).

  • Use of Handouts: Providing examples of the concepts you are describing can sometimes help to solidify a presentation. If you want to share additional resources with attendees, you may submit them to ADRP by the deadline to make them available for your session attendees online.

  • Source Citation: Research used in developing the presentation must be referenced, with sources cited and permission granted, for use of another organization's samples or information.

  • Copyright: Because we are providing recordings and materials to attendees, please do not use any copyrighted images in your presentation that you do not own the rights to. If you have any questions about this, please contact our office.

  • Know Your Audience: Frontline fundraisers may be present in the audience at your presentation, so please be mindful of this fact and be respectful of them and their work.

  • Attire: Most presenters choose to dress in business casual attire for their presentation. Since ADRP Zooms In is virtual, we encourage you to avoid large patterns or bright colors that may be visually distracting for your audience.

  • Cancellations: Please notify the ADRP Office at [email protected] immediately if an emergency may prevent you from presenting a session.
