Helpful resources for confirmed presenters of this year's conference

Uploading Your Presentations to the Conference App

Presenters will upload their presentations directly into the STFM Conference App. When the app is ready to accept uploads, all lead presenters will receive an email with uploading instructions. Please plan on uploading your presentations prior to heading to the conference. 

Be aware that uploading to the Conference App does not automatically place your presentation materials in the STFM Resource Library. If you'd like for other attendees (and yourself) to be able to access your presentation after the conference, please also upload your presentation to the STFM Resource Library.
