Presenters play a vital role in creating the premier autism and disabilities conference, and using your influence to tell others about it solidifies your role. Your expertise, knowledge, ideas, experiences, and stories are essential to the success of this humble endeavor. The most powerful compliment we can ever receive is the one where you turn to your friends, family or colleagues, and say, "You should attend OCALICON because _________," and then fill in the blank with your reason why.
It's the personal invitation and those reasons why that open the doors for others to come, to experience what you've experienced.
The OCALICON 2021 Promotional Toolkit is a small collection of simple, no-cost, no-stress ways you can bang the gong, sound the alarm, and spread the word. Let your colleagues, friends, family – let the whole world know what you're doing this November.
Have fun with your promotions! And don’t forget to link to the conference website — and tag your posts with #OCALICON2021!
