CMS Speaker info and Presenter agreement

Thank you for agreeing to share your expertise with the members of the Cascade Mycological Society (CMS) and the general public. Please complete the top portion of the form below to tell us about you and your talk, then select the check box next to each item below to which you agree.  Agreement to items 1 and 2  are needed for participation in a CMS meeting/event.  Agreement to items 3 and 4 are optional and let us know about your presentation retention wishes.

After submission, please check your email inbox and spam folders for an email confirmation of this agreement for your records.

What to expect

After creation we will provide you with links to our advertising of your presentation. This normally includes a CMS website posting, a Facebook event, a Twitter post, and a Eugene Weekly posting. We will also provide you a link to the pre-scheduled YouTube livestream. Please feel free to share these with friends and colleagues.

Presenting virtually

You will be presenting via Zoom and will be provided a Zoom link well in advance. We do not invite CMS members and/or the public into the Zoom meeting. Instead, we livestream the Zoom meeting to the CMS YouTube channel for our members and the public to view. The Zoom meeting will be just you, the CMS President (Chris Melotti), and a CMS web team member. We normally field questions from the audience via YouTube chat at the end of the presentation. If you prefer to take questions during the presentation, just let us know.

Presenting in person

If you will be joining us in person at the Amazon Community Center in Eugene, your audience will be both in the room and a YouTube livestream. You may bring your presentation on a thumb drive, or upload it to a shared location in advance (you will be provided a link). CMS will provide a projector, laptop, laser pointer/slide advancer, and a wireless microphone (required for the livestream). If for some reason you prefer to present with your own laptop at minimum you will need either an HDMI port (preferred) or a VGA port, and at least one USB port for the wireless microphone, a second USB port for the laser pointer is a plus. We will have a CMS member on hand to do all of the tech setup.
