Speaker Protocol

Audio Visual
NYCOM will provide a speaker table, laptop, LCD projector, and screen for presentations. In most cases, a podium and microphone will be available as well.

Copyrighted Material
The speaker shall not provide copyrighted or other proprietary information to the association without permission from the owner of such material or rights and shall be solely responsible for any damages resulting from such disclosures. You shall be solely responsible for obtaining such permission and agree to indemnify for any claim that information or materials submitted by you infringe any third-party intellectual property right. You grant the League a nonexclusive license to use, copy, edit, modify, transmit, distribute and to create a derivative work of any information or material submitted by you for purposes of the program.

Handouts
There will be a table available for materials written by the speaker.

NYCOM will bring the handouts for attendees if the handouts were received by the deadline given. If handouts are received after the date given, they are the speakers’ responsibility and costs will not be reimbursed – you may call NYCOM to see how many people are registered and how many handouts you need to bring with you to the program.

Invoicing
If you require a fee or honorarium, this must be mutually agreed upon prior to the date of the program. 

Presentation
Adult learners need interaction. Your presentation should includeat least one interactive component.  

Your contact information and logo can be on the handout; however no advertisement for your company can be included in the handout or on the overhead.

Travel
If you ask for a sleeping room and you don’t use it and you don’t cancel it with a NYCOM staff member or with the hotel, you will be charged for it.

If a speaker is within a 100 mile radius of the training site, housing is not usually provided unless it is determined to be a necessity. When housing is covered, NYCOM will pick up the room, occupancy tax and meal charges only. Incidental charges (such as movies, laundry services, etc.) will not be covered by the League.

NYCOM will pay the IRS mileage rate.
