What is a Session Presider?
A Session Presider is an MVC attendee who serves as an "ambassador" to one or more speakers. Presiders introduce the speakers of their selected sessions using an introduction prepared by the MVC staff and, in the event of a problem, assist in locating appropriate staff to resolve A/V equipment or room issues.

What are the benefits of becoming a Presider?
Presiders are welcome and encouraged to join their speaker(s) for a complimentary lunch on the day(s) they preside. This is a great way to network with experts in your field! In addition, all Session Presiders will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a Columbus Sport Package including four tickets to a Columbus Clippers baseball game.

How can I sign up?
Click Volunteer to select the sessions you'd like to preside over. Only one presider is needed per session, so sign up early to make sure your desired sessions are still available!
