In-Person Education Faculty Toolkit
AHLA values the commitment of its volunteer faculty and is very thankful for all those who participate in the planning of sessions and the delivery of presentations at our in-person programs. One element of the Association’s mission is to produce the highest quality non-partisan educational programs. In order to do so, faculty shall have both in-depth and broad knowledge of the subject they are presenting, going beyond their personal experience, or the experience of their organization or firm. It is also valuable to incorporate a global perspective whenever possible on the topic of discussion. This Toolkit provides examples for participants, which illustrate various points of view and methods for delivering a quality presentation.
AHLA program attendees invest a considerable amount of time and money to attend our programs. In order to best serve our attendees’ educational needs, AHLA’s volunteers and staff work hard to ensure each and every session at the program realizes its full potential. See our list of expectations.

Planning Your Materials
AHLA strives to maintain readership and membership across the widest possible range of viewpoints involved in health law. The materials turned in by our faculty are what distinguish our programs from those of our competitors. We've put together some examples of high-quality program materials, tips on how to put together a great PowerPoint Presentation, and other additional information you'll need to know.
The best presentations are often those that take time to engage the audience directly. For those presenting for the first time and our long-time presenters, here are some tips for delivering an effective presentation.
AHLA staff will contact each faculty member once they have been confirmed by a member of the planning committee. Specific logistical information will be sent at that time. Here are some important logistical items to keep in mind.
