Specific Information about the Small Group Sessions

PASCD is continuing the Ignite format this year. Each presenter selected for a small group session will participate in the conference in two ways.

  • Ignite Presentation: This is a high-­powered, fast-­paced presentation packed into only 4 minutes (no more, no less). This presentation will be delivered once during the conference and will serve as an overview of the small group session. Think of it as a teaser or preview to garner interest for the small group session. Find more information about the format of an Ignite session here:

  • Small Group Presentation: During this session, presenters will have time to expand on the topics they presented at the Ignite Session. This session will be presented once or twice.
