The purpose of Presiders and Room Chairs is to insure that sessions are organized and that the presenter(s) have all equipment and necessary items for the session. These positions provide the professional courtesies that the clinicians, performing groups and the membership are entitled to representing VMEA.

  • Check room for proper equipment and set-up including AV equipment.
  • Introduce the clinician / performing group. Learn a few important facts about the presenter and / or performing group for your introduction.
  • Present plaque / certificate when appropriate at the conclusion of the session.
    • Performing groups receive a plaque
    • Demonstration groups receive a certificate
    • These plaques and or certificates and other pertinent material will be available from Section Presidents or designee.
  • Provide assistance when necessary to Room Chairs in checking badges at the door.
  • Concerts are open to the public so badges are not necessary.
