At the Conference

A program host will be assigned to each of the rooms where concurrent sessions are being held. When you arrive at the room, your host will greet you and assist you with setting up your PowerPoint slides and projector as well as any other audio-visual equipment you have requested. During your presentation, your host will hold up time cards to help keep you on schedule and let you know when your time is up. At the end, he or she will act as a “moderator,” queuing audience questions. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at conference@afhto.ca.
