Chair Responsibilities

ICCEES panels/roundtables are 90 minutes long, and typically consist of a chair, given a total of five minutes for panel and presenter introductions; presenters on a three-person panel are given 20 minutes each; presenters on a four-person panel will have 15 minutes each; and in some instances, a discussant.
 

  • Make sure that the session is being recorded (unpause recording at the beginning of the session). The recording sign should be on.
     
  • Make sure to admit all attendees at the beginning of the session (enable waiting room).
     
  • Moderate Q&A or Chat at the end of the session
     
  • Session timekeeper (Session has to start and finish on time)

TIPS for Chairing your Session

1. Admit attendees to the room and activate Recording.

2. Introduce yourself.

3. Explain the order of proceedings of the session including timekeeping practices at the very beginning of the panel:

• This will avoid unequal time presenters; this will allow for ample time for the questions and answers period.

4. Prepare introductions for each presenter (you are responsible to collect their bios in advance).

5. We recommend holding questions until the end of all presentations.
