 8. Presentation Room Etiquette. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your presentation time. Use your thumb drive with the FMEC laptop and LCD projector (do not bring your computer). Listen to the Session Moderator, if one is assigned, and end your presentation on time. You may be speaking in a session with multiple other presentations (Lecture Discussion, Paper, Research/QI, Speed, Clinical Success Story). We ask that you stay for all presentations and do not leave your presentation room until everyone has presented. Be courteous to other presenters by keeping distractions to a minimum.
