NAIS AC Powered by PechaKucha

NAIS has adapted the exciting, quickfire format of popular PechaKucha presentations for the Annual Conference stage. 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 the 2017 NAIS Annual Conference in Baltimore! See below for the presentations that were made at the 2018 NAIS Annual Conference in Atlanta.
 
Hosted by PechaKucha Orlando organizer and coach Eddie Selover, NAIS PechaKucha sessions educate, inform, and inspire.
