Lightning Rounds

Net Inclusion’s “Lightning Rounds” offer attendees a time-limited and slide-limited presentation format to aid connections. The goals are to engage our digital inclusion community of practice and initiate networking at the conference. Think of it as a beacon to find the people you’d love to have a hallway conversation with.

The deadline to submit proposals is Friday, February 15, 2018.

All Lightning Round presenters must represent NDIA affiliate organizations. Only one Lightning Round presentation per organization will be accepted. Request Affiliate membership here.
