If you are interested in presenting and haven’t been to History Camp before, there are important ways in which being a part of History Camp is different than being a speaker at a conference.  It comes down to this: We’re all in this together, which means, among other things…

• Presenters come at the beginning and stay until the end. Speakers do not just come for their session and leave.

• No one is paid. This is an all-volunteer effort designed to break even.

• You are your own A/V tech. Just arrive early if you are doing the first session so you have plenty of time to set up, and stay until the next person comes so you can help them.

• Everyone pays. There is no formal organization behind History Camp. Your payment, along with those from everyone else, means that the organizers don’t have to dig in to their own pockets to make up the shortfall.

• Everyone shares. If you have slides, we’ll help you post them to the History Camp site. We may also videotape or stream your presentation live (such as on Facebook) so that people who can’t attend can benefit from History Camp.

If History Camp sounds like its for you, please fill out this form. Browse prior years to read about other presentations as well as the different formats that have been used. If you have questions, please let me know.
