Why you should present at the ACHAP Biennial conference?

The first and foremost reason is that you get to meet new people such as yourself, you get a chance to “talk shop” with people who do what you do and understand the challenges faced in the work of promoting health, and you get a chance to share your experience/knowledge with others.

Some other reasons that presenting at a conference in a worthwhile endeavor include:

  • Meet and network with like-minded individuals
  • Introduce yourself to the community of people involved in Health as someone who has something to offer
  • Establish professional credibility by demonstrating knowledge, skills and experience
  • Opportunity to learn from others who understand the challenges of your sector as well as sharing your experiences
  • Establish contacts in the sector for future collaborations opportunities and/or knowledge sharing
  • Opportunity to showcase your accomplishments (and those of your organization)
  • A chance to practice your presentation skills in a non-threatening environment
  • Be actively involved in your professional development
  • Get the opportunity to share your knowledge/expertise
  • Learn something

We also actively encourage people who have never presented at a conference to submit abstracts. Presenting at a conference is a great way to practice your presentation skills, establish credibility, and introduce yourself to others in the sector. It is also a great way to meet new people and establish contacts for future knowledge sharing and collaborations.
