Our services are structured around the understanding that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. Details on how to donate will be shared soon.

Moderators & Recorders

Interested in becoming more involved at the 2021 GEM Summit? Consider volunteering as a Moderator or Recorder for an education session. Volunteer by March 22. Assignments will be emailed out the week of April 5. Moderators arrive to their assigned room a few minutes early to assist the presenter(s) with any A/V or other needs. They are also in charge of introducing the session presenter or panelists to the audience at the start of the session. Moderators’ other responsibilities include making sure the session stays on time, reminding attendees to take notes during the session to assist them in providing feedback via the conference evaluation survey, being prepared to ask a question or two if the members of the audience don’t have any, and closing the session with any additional announcements that might be necessary. Moderators fill out their own brief survey of the session and presenter(s) and are presented with a small token of appreciation for their participation. Recorders are assigned to a particular session and are responsible for writing a summary of that session for publication in NAGAP’s Perspectives. Summaries should be approximately 200-300 words and are generally due to the Publications Committee shortly after the conference ends. Recorders are presented with a small token of appreciation for their participation in addition to being published.
