Not at all!
Many of our participants choose sessions based on topics that are affecting their community or society as a whole! These range from mental health, governance, education, social issues, volunteer challenges, international ministry and much more!
Session Speakers are donating their time & talents and are therefore responsible for their own lodging and travel.

BPM uses an app to share the information regarding sessions to all participants. You will be able to make changes to your session information once the app has been published and you create your login information. Additional features include:
- Updating pictures
- Asking session questions
- Receiving feedback from participants
- Gathering contact information
There will be tutorials for the app once we are published to navigate and utilize throughout and beyond the conference. Below is more information regarding the BPM app.
Most presentation rooms come with a standard projector with HDMI, PC computer, clicker, and audio recording device. You are more than welcome to use your own computer, however, you will need to provide any adapters needed for HDMI.
During the Conference
Day 1– speaker check-in is available at the entrance of the conference
Day 2 & 3– speakers can check-in at the front office.
CCL will not be recording sessions this year.
Once you complete your session, please make sure you leave behind any supplies that were provided. If you brought a personal device, check the room for your chargers and thumb drives, and be sure to remove the adapter for the clicker you used.
We already have the information we need from you and you are already accounted for. Instead, download the event app (details below) to view and edit your exhibitor details as appropriate. You will continue to receive emails to the general BPM population about registering, but you are good to go!
If you have additional people associated with your booth, they may register and we will add them to your exhibitor booth contact in the app.
We are providing opportunity for electronic advertising on our on-campus screens. In addition, there are many ways to advertise and network in-app.
