MAEA membership is REQUIRED for all presenters and co-presenters at the time of submission and at the time of presentation. We verify membership for the main presenter and co-presenters upon presentation submissions. Up to and no more than four (4) presenter names will be listed for any session. All memberships must be active now and in November 2019. Before adding a co-presenter, please verify with them that they wish to be added to your session and acquire their membership status and MAEA member ID number. Presenters and co-presenters may not be added or changed once presentations have been submitted. If accepted, I understand that as a lead presenter I receive complementary conference registration, and all my co-presenters must pay the registration fee of $80 for the conference and we all need to register by the earlybird deadline in order to have my/our presentation listed in the program catalog. If accepted, I agree to present the session information as provided on this submittal form and to adhere to all presenter policies. I agree that if I am unable to attend and/or present my scheduled session and I do not notify MAEA, then I acknowledge that I will not be allowed to present at the following year's conference.
As a presentation applicant, I agree as follows:
(a) I represent that: (i) I am the exclusive creator of all of the works, materials, and content presented by me and the works, materials, and content are original; and/or (ii) I have licensed the right to present the works, materials, and content presented by me which I did not create or which are not original. I represent that the works, materials, and content presented by me do not infringe or violate any copyright, trademark, patent, or intellectual property rights of any person or entity;
(b) My presentation will not defame, slander, or libel any person, firm, or corporation;
(c) My presentation will be professional and shall not denigrate MAEA, its programs, or representatives in any manner;
(d) I will defend and hold harmless MAEA, its officers, and agents against claims of copyright, trademark, patent or intellectual property rights infringement, and against other claims made by third parties as a result of my presentation; and
(e) I grant to MAEA permission to photograph or videotape my presentation at the MAEA conference; and I grant to MAEA a limited, non-exclusive license to use and reproduce such photographs or videos on its website, in its publications, and in any media presentations about the MAEA conference. I consent to MAEA editing my presentation for its use on its website, in its publications, mobile app, and other media presentations about the MAEA conference.
Attendees of the MAEA conference have an expectation that program sessions provide quality professional development and are relevant to art educators and MAEA members. Sessions are not to be commercial in nature, no matter how subtle.
