Thank you for accepting your invitation to speak at TECHSHOW 2024. Your expertise and insight is vital to the success of TECHSHOW. Please work with your track leader and co-presenter to finalize the title and description for your presentation. These will be posted online in October. If you have not yet submitted your bio and headshot for the speakers page, please e-mail them to Marcia Yarbrough at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Below you will find a list of important deadlines, forms, and guides for TECHSHOW 2024 Faculty. It may take some time to collect all of your materials for your presentation so we urge you to begin that process as quickly as possible. We need 10 pages of original content when requesting CLE. Your track leader will explain this in greater detail when you meet.
You can find all the necessary forms, templates, documents, and supplemental information in the faculty document library.
If you are not local to Chicago (more than 30 miles away from the Hyatt Regency Chicago at 151 E.

Please make your hotel reservation through the ABA TECHSHOW portal at the Hyatt Regency. ABA staff will then contact the hotel to mark one or two of your nights as complimentary depending on how many days you are speaking at TECHSHOW. Please consult the schedule below when determining how many nights you are staying. We will have a large celebration event on Friday night and a faculty networking breakfast on Saturday morning if you choose to stay Friday night as well. To confirm whether you are presenting on one day or two days, please contact your track leader.
