This page will be updated with times soon!

NAIS has adapted the exciting, quickfire format of popular PechaKucha presentations for the NAIS Online Annual Conference virtual setting. Each presenter must adhere to the 20x20 rule: 20 slides that advance automatically, at 20 seconds per slide. Presentations can be funny, sad, informative, inspirational—but what they must all be is concise and visual.
 
Hosted by PechaKucha Orlando organizer and coach Eddie Selover, NAIS PechaKucha sessions educate, inform, and inspire.
