2018 Moderator Application - Due March 17

Application Form for Panel AND Author Spotlight Moderators

General Moderator Expectations for All Moderators

  • Moderators ensure that the session stays on schedule and all participants have an equal voice.
  • A webinar on Moderating will be available in late spring. If you have not moderated at a previous conference, you are required to watch. All moderators are invited to check it out.
  • Moderators are facilitators and not participants.

Additional Panel Moderator Expectations

  • Moderators for panels should solicit input from the panelists on the subject matter and work as a team to develop a series of questions for the moderator to ask during the panel.
  • The moderator will, with input from the panelists, develop a plan for how the panel will function, including expectations for sharing the airtime equally and methods that will be employed if any panelist monopolizes the time.
  • Panel moderators should have effective diplomacy skills and be able to adeptly navigate the live conversation to include all participants.

Additional Author Spotlight Expectations

  • The moderators of our Author Spotlights are responsible for making sure each and every author has an equal “Spotlight” (e.g., equal time reading and answering questions from the audience).
  • Moderators of Author Spotlights should be bold enough to politely interrupt an author and inform her that her time has expired.
  • Moderators are expected to contact all of their authors prior to the conference and inform them of the expectations so they may properly prepare.
