Speaker Guidelines

***Do NOT include co-authors on your abstract unless they are actually presenting. Co-presenters will be listed in the program ONLY if they are actually presenting. 

    The benefits of presenting include:

  • Recognition as an expert in the field on conference marketing and promotional materials distributed across the country and around the world, as well as to hundreds of attendees who are often key stakeholders in their jurisdictions. 
  • Continuing education credit, if applicable.
  • Networking and exposure to leaders in the field.
  • The lead presenter in the Pre-Conference Workshop will receive a complimentary registration to all Pre Conference Workshops.
  • The lead presenter in the Main Conference will receive a complimentary registration to the Main Conference.
  • Co-presenters will receive complimentary registration for the day of their presentation and must register for the remaining conference they choose to attend.

For Breakout Presentations:

  • All presenters are required to provide an electronic copy of their PowerPoint presentation in advance of their session, and to participate in technical testing and rehearsals.  
  • NCPG will not distribute, or be responsible for the distribution of any presentation materials; however, all attendees will be able to view a recording of the conference sessions for 30 days afterward.

    For Panels:
  • We encourage diverse representation amongst the panelists; this should include but not be limited to members of cultural, racial, and sexual orientation groups.
  • The lead presenter submitting the presentation is to serve as the organizer of the panel. 
  • The lead presenter will secure the participation of the panel members and provide all required information on the panel members to NCPG
  • Panel members, we encourage you to discuss the key points of discussion with your fellow panel members and moderator.  
  • Please allow for a question and answer period of around 5-10 minutes within your session – for both panels and presentations.
  • Conference staff will work with panel moderator to determine the exact session length and order of speakers, subject to the needs of the conference program.


  • NCPG expects the information that you share at the conference is for the benefit of attendee education and learning. Conference presentations are not an appropriate forum for product sales pitches or demonstrations. Sponsorship and promotional opportunities to maximize exposure for vendors of problem gambling and responsible gambling services are available, contact Barbara Rollins barbarar@ncpgambling.org
