We are now up to 200 registered attendees! I would like to remind you about
some of the SCHED features https://ncmatyc2019.sched.com you have as a speaker.
- Speakers can upload files to their session: You can do this before or after your session.
- Speakers can edit their session description: For example, maybe you will want to add links to
- Speakers can email attendees in their session: People that sign up for your session can be contacted
by you. You can use email feature to continue conversations, thank them
for coming, further questions to think about, etc.
- Speakers can see attendee feedback for their session: I am not sure if that feedback is anonymous, so I
have added that note. I think you will get an email of your
feedback. But I am not sure.
Also, please encourage people to posting
comments/feedback in the NCMATYC Slack https://ncmatyc.slack.com. There is the channel
#ncmatyc-conference and many other channels, such as #RISE, where people can
collaborate about your presentation.
Thanks so much for your effort and time in making the 2019 conference possible.
Let me know if you have any feedback or questions,
