Welcome to the National Auctioneers Association Speaker Resource Center. This resource is designed to assist our education speakers with the development of their educational programs.

HYBRID Conference & Show 2021 Speakers!
Thank you for being a part of this year’s first-ever HYBRID C&S and helping to bring great professional and business content to the auction community! Your assigned Conference & Show Education Committee (CSEC) member or NAA staff will work with you to ensure deliverables are completed and submitted for your in-person, virtual, or simulcast (hybrid) session.

Important Deadlines to Remember:

Volunteer Speaker Agreement

Please complete, date, sign, and submit the NEW C&S 2021 Volunteer Speaker Agreement to be eligible for speaker benefits. Please email education@auctioneers.org with any questions.

Session Formats and Templates

Our Virtual Conference Education Program will consist mostly of 30-minute and 60-minute sessions with a few 90-minute and 2-hour sessions where the content requires more time.

Most of the sessions will be “simulcast” sessions, where the session is delivered live to both an in-person and a virtual audience. As the speaker of a “simulcast” session, you will deliver your content in the room and an education monitor will interact with you on behalf of the virtual audience chat in the online viewing platform. This provides real-time engagement between the speaker and both the in-person and virtual audience.

Use this 2021 Conference & Show PowerPoint template for your education sessions (please note the inclusion of a learning objectives slide).

If presenting an on-demand session, please review the Presentation Submission Instructions for tips and best practices for recording you session.
