AAOE 2018 Annual Conference Liveblogging Opportunity

This year, we’re offering an exciting opportunity to help share the Annual Conference with those who couldn’t attend by liveblogging popular sessions! You don’t have to be an experienced writer to participate. You just need to be willing to share your thoughts and takeaways on a session with fellow members and attendees through a short blog post.


Here’s how it will work:

1. If you haven’t already, register for the 2018 Annual Conference.

2. View the list of proposed sessions on the AAOE 2018 Conference Volunteer sign-up genius form and sign up for the session you would like to liveblog. You can find session descriptions at

3. Plan to attend the session(s) you signed up for. The best way to do this is by adding them to your personalized agenda through the Attendee Service Center. Add your session(s) to your agenda on the service center by Thursday, March 29, 2018 to have them uploaded to your agenda in the mobile app for you.

4. Onsite at the conference, you will attend your session. By 6:00 PM the same day as your session you must email your blog post to Communications Specialist Alyssa DelPrete at She will then revise the blog posts from the day to share with members and attendees in a daily Annual Conference email the next morning.

5.Authors will be credited for their posts, so you will need to provide a short bio to go along with it (you’re encouraged to send an optional headshot photo, as well). You can send these items to Communications Specialist Alyssa DelPrete at ahead of time so they’re ready to be added to your blog post.


Guidelines for Blog Posts:

  • Blog posts should be 300-500 words. (You’ve read approximately 300 words on this page so far.)
  • Give an overview of the session topic and 3-5 key takeaways from the session.
  • Answer the following:
    •  Why is the session topic important and what did you learn by the end?
    •  What are you planning to implement in your practice, and how do you plan to do this?
    •  If someone didn’t attend the session, why would you recommend they purchase Annual Conference recorded content to access the session?
  • Blog posts cannot promote an individual, company, product, or service.
  • Follow AAOE’s author guidelines, which can be found here.
