Snapshot Guidelines

Snapshots are a concise 7-to-10-minute presentation on a specific subject. They focus on an idea, project, workflow, etc. This is a great opportunity for first-time speakers and those whose content is suitable for a shorter time segment.

  • All speakers/co-presenters associated with a selected snapshot must register for the meeting, and are responsible for the cost of their registration.

  • NACUBO reserves the right to revise snapshot titles or edit the description of selected snapshots for NACUBO promotional and program publications.

Proposal Preparation Tips

  • Include as much detail as possible about the presentation in your description. Be clear about your topic and how you plan to make your session interactive.
  • Include three learning objectives for your presentation. When writing learning objectives, focus on the participant and the specific knowledge, skills and abilities that can be achieved from your presentation.
  • Provide audience takeaways. Tell us what an audience of higher education business office professionals will gain by attending your session.
  • Gear the presentation toward an audience at the intermediate to advanced level of understanding, rather than basic treatments or overviews.
