CLE Accreditation - To ensure your session is accredited for CLE, please use the following guidelines:

Speaker Tips

  • NARCA offers live-polling to attendees and offers this as a way to increase interaction and interest. Contact Karen Yates at karen@narca.org by September 15 if you would like to use this feature.
  • For additional interaction and increased learning, we encourage you to pose questions to attendees that require them to discuss with those seated near them.  If you anticipate a series of  questions that might benefit from room facilitators, contact Karen Yates at karen@narca.org.
  • Focus on National topics as much as possible rather than individual jurisdictions.
  • Unless the session is geared to a particular firm size, remember that NARCA is made up of firms that range in size from solo practitioners to 100+ attorneys. It's always most beneficial to speak to all firms.
  • Since the session will be recorded, unless attendee questions can be clearly heard with a microphone, be sure to repeat the question.

**As a reminder, Participants in NARCA programs are seeking valuable education sessions and are always critical of presenters or sessions that are self-promotional. Presenters may not use a conference session for commercial sales pitches, self-promotion or unwarrented criticism of a competitor. Presentations should only advance the educational process; sales pitches do not and are therefor not acceptable. Speakers are not permitted to distribute company promotional literature, brochures or sales material in any form to attendees during their session.
