Fraud'22 Speaker & Moderator Resource Center

Deliverable Deadlines:

  • ASAP – Submit speaker/moderator registration form, bio and headshot
  • Tuesday, Sept. 6 – Session materials (PowerPoint slides, polling spreadsheet)

Need for In-Person Speakers:

The most valuable and effective communication is done in-person. Extensive research (and our experience) tells us that the best way to learn and teach is in the face-to-face environment, where we can achieve a sense of community as well as intimacy and empathy. When in person, attendees can meet peers and senior officials, have follow up technical conversations, and build relationships across government that provide benefit to them and their agency colleagues. Seeing a colleague in the hotel lobby, having a conversation after an educational session, speaking with exhibitors about the latest technology solution. These are just a few of the intangible benefits of in-person learning.

AGA is dedicated to promoting in-person attendance at Fraud 2022 and will continue to highlight the benefits of in-person participation. For this reason, we request your assistance in encouraging your panelists to speak in-person in Washington DC. AGA is offering deeply discounted in-person speaker registration rates as an incentive (see below).

While leveraging virtual speakers may provide additional speaker options, remote speaking involves higher production costs and logistical complexities; therefore, we earnestly discourage this option for Fraud 2022 speakers. And if speakers are virtual, attendees will question why they came in-person if they can’t meet and talk with presenters. Because we are aware that unavoidable circumstances arise that make remote speaking the only option, requests for remote speaking should be based on valid reasons. Each request must be submitted to AGA Meetings at jbruce@agacgfm.org and is subject to approval. Please note that session moderators are required to present in person; no remote option will be in place for moderators. Thank you for your understanding and for your support of our Fraud 2022 speaking policy.

Guidelines for Inviting Speakers

  • Educational Value & Program Diversity — We encourage session coordinators to assemble speakers from a variety of organizations that represent diverse points of view. We suggest each session include a mix of presenters from different organizations and government levels (state, local and federal), gender, career specialties, and race/ethnicities. Only government-sector professionals may particpate in a panel of speakers; private-sector members may only moderate or faciliate a session (except in instances described below).

  • Private-Sector Speakers — Very recent former federal Senior Executive Service (SES) members or equivalent state and local senior executives, now in private or commercial practice, may participate in Fraud'22 sessions as panel speakers; however, participation is subject to approval by AGA. Please send your speaker requests to Jerome Bruce.

If you need suggestions for speakers to include in your session or have questions about the types of speakers to seek out, feel free to reach out to Jerome Bruce before issuing an invitation to someone.

In-person Speakers/Moderator Registration Info:

All speakers and moderators are required to register for the event. AGA needs to make sure we have the correct contact information and a name badge prepared for each person upon arrival. Please complete the speaker and/or moderator registration form and e-mail it to mcordova@agacgfm.org at your earliest convenience.

Important Note: While leveraging virtual speakers may provide additional speaker options, remote speaking involves higher production costs and logistical complexities; therefore, we earnestly discourage this option for Fraud'22 speakers. And attendees will question why they came in-person if speakers are virtual!

Because we are aware that unavoidable circumstances arise that make remote speaking the only option, requests for remote speaking should be based on valid reasons. Each request must be submitted to AGA Meetings team at jbruce@agacgfm.org and is subject to approval and a different speaker registration structure may apply. Please note that session moderators are required to present in person; no remote option will be in place for moderators.

Speaker registration rates above do not apply to private sector moderators. Private sector moderators must register online or use one of the sponsor comp registration allotment.

Bios & Headshot/Attire/Audiovisual:

  • Bio & Headshot — Send a 40–100 word bio in sentence form (no bullets or resumes) and a high-resolution headshot in .jpg/.jpeg format to Monica Cordova at your earliest convenience.
  • Attire — Business casual attire is appropriate for all speakers and moderators. Jackets and collared shirts are suggested for men (no ties required) or shirts with corporate logos. Since no tables will be in front of our speakers, we suggest no skirts above the knee for ladies.
  • Room Set-up & Audiovisual Speakers and moderators will be sitting on chairs that are spread out across the stage. Each panelist will receive a sanitized lavalier mic. Moderators are required to use their own device to monitor the Q&A, please read "presentation materials and engagement tools" section for detailed information on Q&A.
  • Zoom BG

Moderator Responsibilities & Best Practices:

As the moderator, you will serve as a discussion facilitator. You will introduce speakers, keep time, and facilitate the audience Q&A portion of the presentation. Please make sure to review the "moderator best practices".

  • Arrive at the session room at least 10 minutes before the start of the presentation. This will allow you to greet the speakers at the front of the room and connect with the audiovisual technicians.
  • If you plan to use PowerPoint, the presentations will be loaded onto the laptop located in the session room and saved as “session ID_ All Speakers/Speaker last name.” When you arrive in the room, please open the PowerPoint, if it’s not opened already, and verify that it is ready to go. AV technicians will be available to assist with audiovisual equipment as needed.
  • Moderators are required to use their own device (cell phone or tablet) to view attendees’ questions. Please visit your "app store" and download the Fraud'22 app or go to fraud.cnf.io and select your session number to see the questions submitted by the audience, ranked by popularity. For more tips on how our Q&A works, check out the Presentation Materials & Engagement Tools section posted below.

Moderator Best Practices

Presentation Materials & Engagement Tools:

  • Slide Design & Template — We strongly encourage all speakers to use the Fraud'22 PowerPoint template provided at the link below and follow the slide design guidelines.

Presentation slides are posted for attendees to view and to print before the training. By submitting your slides to AGA, you agree to their publication unless otherwise specified.

To maintain consistency, combine all speaker slides into one PowerPoint deck in the order in which they will be presented. Send the final slide deck to Monica Cordova (with your polling spreadsheet, if applicable) on or before Sept. 6.

PowerPoint Template

  • Social Q&A — Social Q&A allows attendees to ask the panelists questions anonymously in real-time during a session, using the chatroom on their player screen. Attendees can see the questions other people ask and upvote questions they want speakers to address. This feature will be used in all sessions. Please watch the Social Q&A tutorial video below or click here to a quick read.

  • Polling — As the moderator, you will have access to the same screen view as the audience. AGA will administer polling and build your questions and results slides into your presentation, so everything is set-up and ready for you.

  1. Complete the polling spreadsheet (linked below) with your questions. Include a blank PowerPointslide in your presentation for each polling question so AGA can embed each pollin its correct place.
  2. For more information on the types of polling in your presentation, please click on the image below.

  • Team Battle! — Team Battle is a quiz-style game in which groups of attendees compete against one another to answer questions quickly and correctly. If you would like to incorporate Team Battle into your presentation, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Include one blank slide in your presentation where you want to begin the battle.
  2. Complete the Team Battle spreadsheet with your questions and answers. Please indicate in your spreadsheet which answer is the correct one!

IMPORTANT: Once you have inserted the blank slide into your final PowerPoint presentation, email all three documents (final slide deck and completed polling/Team Battle spreadsheet ) to mcordova@agacgfm.org no later than Sept. 6.
