NAIS AC Powered by PechaKucha

All times Eastern

NAIS has adapted the exciting, quickfire format of popular PechaKucha presentations for the 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.

Watch the PechaKucha presentations from previous Annual Conferences. Please check out the session for the 2021 NAIS Annual Conference below!
 
Hosted by PechaKucha Orlando organizer and coach Eddie Selover, NAIS PechaKucha sessions educate, inform, and inspire.
