Frequently Asked Questions
FAQs are for traditional in-person events. Things are different right now, so we’ve added some for our virtual events too.
How do I attend?
Conferences are open to NASCIO members only. Corporate members are limited to 3 paying representatives per conference; additional registrations are included in sponsorship packages. Nonprofit and academic members are limited to 2 paying representatives per conference. There is no limit for state members. (registrant limits pertains to in-person events)
How do I speak/present at a conference?
Conferences feature professional speakers for keynote sessions and largely utilize members for topical sessions. NASCIO does not host a call for abstracts/proposals; session topics and speakers flow through the NASCIO programs committee. Please review this infographic on the planning process. Watch the NASCIO Community for speaking opportunities for members.
How can my company sponsor?
Sponsorship is open to NASCIO corporate members in good standing. Opportunities are available on a first-come first-served basis. Packages and registration open date will be shared via email with the organization’s primary contact, typically about 4 months prior to a conference.
How can my company exhibit or host a demo?
NASCIO conferences are educational and networking based; they do not include an exhibit hall or trade show.
Can my company host an event during a conference?
Events (meetings, receptions, meals, etc.) are permitted provided there is a 30-minute buffer between NASCIO programming. NASCIO will neither endorse nor condone companion events.
All NASCIO corporate members, partner entities, conference sponsors and attendees are expressly prohibited from holding events that run concurrent with NASCIO conference sessions, meetings, meals, receptions or any other conference-related events.
