2021 PRESENTER AGREEMENT
DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC, THE CONFERENCE ORGANIZERS HAVE DECIDED TO HOLD THE 69TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE PRIMARILY IN A VIRTUAL FORMAT. WE CONTINUE TO ENCOURAGE SESSION, PANEL, AND INDIVIDUAL PROPOSALS WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT SPEAKERS WILL PARTICIPATE IN A DIGITAL FORMAT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.
If my paper is accepted, I agree to the following:
I agree to attend the 69th annual Utah State Historical Society Conference Public Health and the Common Good, which will be held September 20-24, 2021, and to deliver my presentation in a virtual format.
I agree to register at https://history.utah.gov/ushs-conference. Registration will begin June 1, 2021.
I am submitting a 50-word biography, which may be published on the conference program and/or Utah State History’s website. In addition I am submitting a CV or professional resume.
I am submitting a 500-word proposal of my paper, which may be published on the conference program and/or Utah State History’s website.
For sessions that are pre-recorded, I agree to work with State History to record my session by August 15, 2021.
A/V NEEDS WILL BE DETERMINED AT A LATER DATE AS WE EXPLORE VIRTUAL PRESENTATION OPTIONS FOR SESSIONS. We will make every effort to accomodate A/V requests, but some equipment may not be available.
I agree to stay within my allotted time limit for my presentation, as determined by the chairperson of your session. I understand that if I go beyond my allotted minutes, I am taking time from other participants, the commentator, and the audience. A good rule of thumb is to allow one minute for every 150 words, or 2 to 2.5 minutes per printed page (double-spaced, 12 pt. type).
I agree to have my session audio (or video) recorded. I give permission to State History, if it chooses, to produce electronic copies in whole or in part and in any media deemed fit for inclusion on the Utah State History website.
I give my permission for photos and video to be taken of me and/or my session during the conference. These images and my likeness, name and biographical information may be used for current and future conference publicity and marketing purposes.
If arranged, I am willing to be interviewed by the media and other sources prior to the conference.
In making my presentation, I recognize that I am not acting as an employee, agent or spokesperson for the Utah Division of State History, the Utah State Historical Society, or the State of Utah. I am also aware that State History is a state agency that relies on the support of the Utah legislature and the Office of the Governor. I hereby affirm that none of the material presented in my presentation infringes on any person's copyright or right of privacy, and further, I will not libel or slander any other person, facility, product, company, or service during my presentation. If such affirmation is breached, I will indemnify and hold harmless State History, its officers, board of directors, and members. I affirm that the work I shall present at the conference is based on defensible research and appropriate professional methodology with carefully referenced and cited works. I further agree that during my attendance at the conference, my conduct will conform to the highest standards of ethical and professional deportment and courtesy.
