Please read this information carefully.  It should answer all of your questions regarding your workshop presentation.

  • NAMI highly encourages the use of hand-outs to supplement any audio-visual presentations Experience has taught us that convention attendees are anxious to take materials home with them from the convention to share with others.  Please contact your workshop coordinator regarding hand-outs for your workshop presentation.
