You must submit your request using the online presentation request form at least 2 weeks in advance to allow for adequate time to arrange a presenter. One request per presentation is appreciated. Expect to receive a confirmation e-mail if/when your presentation is accepted by our staff.
There are certain times of the school year when our availability is limited. Your understanding and advance planning during these times are appreciated:
- Presentations during the first and last 2-3 weeks of each semester are possible, but require at least one month notice. It is a busy time in the ASC, and our schedules fill up quickly.
- Presentations during winter, spring, or fall break can be difficult to accommodate.
- We provide workshops throughout the semester as an alternative to presentations. We are happy to accomodate students who need to verify proof of attendance with advanced notice.
Please keep in mind submitting a request is not a guarantee of a presentation as it is based on our staff's availability. Please also be mindful of the size of your group; we want to accommodate the most people possible when the need is highest. Thank you for your support!
If you have a question regarding presentations, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, call our office (515-294-6624), or contact our secretary directly. The secretary position is currently vacant but the email and phone will be monitored by other staff.
