CSCA 2018 Official Technology Availability Statement

As you prepare for this year's conference, CSCA wants to provide a reminder regarding what technology will be available for presenters at this year's convention.

PROJECTORS: The following presentation rooms will have projectors that should be able to connect to most computers. If you have a Mac, you may need a dongle:

Wright A, Wright B, Walker, Mitchell, MacArthur, Oak, Kilbourn, Usinger, and Miller

CSCA cannot be responsible for any personal computing issues.

SPEAKERS: The association will have speakers available in the following presentation rooms:

Wright B, Wright C, Walker, Oak, and Miller

Two other sets of speakers can be requested from the registration desk on a first-come, first-served basis. We strongly recommend that if audio is important to your presentation that you bring your own speakers if possible.

INTERNET/WIFI: We regret that the hotel has informed us that, due to traffic, wifi will be too weak to support streaming and, at peak times, may not work in the convention presentation areas. Please plan accordingly.

CSCA works  hard to provide as much technology as possible for the convention, but exorbitant costs incurred by hotels limit what can be provided. We do thank you for understanding!

We also thank Conference Technical Director Rebecca Johnson who graciously stepped in last moment to help with technology setup at this year's conference. Her hard work is greatly appreciated!


CSCA Technology Policy

CSCA will attempt to provide multimedia projectors and speakers based on financial considerations to all presenters who request them at the time of the program submission.

CSCA is unable to approve requests for equipment such as personal computers, laser printers, satellite links, teleconference equipment, DVD/VHS players, or Internet access. CSCA members or individuals attending the convention either may elect to rent such equipment from the convention hotel at their own personal expense or may bring their own equipment, unless prohibited by the convention hotel. (Please check beforehand with the Executive Director about the convention hotel policy). If individuals provide their own equipment, the hotel may elect not to help if service is needed. If the hotel does help and assesses a fee, the individual requesting help is responsible for all charges.
