Posters and Lightning Talks

Deadline: March 1

Including your poster and/or giving a Lightning Talk at the 2022 Wisconsin Lakes and Rivers Convention is a great way to share your research, project, success story, and/or lessons learned!

We encourage highlights of efforts and ideas that support diversity, equity, and inclusion in water resource protection and management.

Posters will be displayed in the Commons area where attendees congregate throughout the convention for breaks, networking and information. During the Thursday poster session you and other poster presenters will have a chance to share and discuss your topic one-on-one with a state-wide audience.

Poster submissions should address the Convention’s broad theme of “Protecting What We Love for the Future.”

Guidelines for poster presenters:

  • Posters should be 3 feet high by 4 feet wide (they will be displayed on horizontal boards) and readable from a distance of at least one meter.
  • Posters should be set up no later than Thursday, April 7 at 8:00 am.
  • Presenters are required to attend their posters during the Poster Session from 3:30 – 5:00 pm on Thursday, April 7.
  • Handout materials for attendees may be provided. Please bring something to contain your handout materials, such as a leaflet holder, pocket folder, etc.
  • You may submit your poster as a PDF if you would like it included on our Convention app.
  • We require all presenters to register for the Convention. If you need assistance, please see our scholarship information.

Please Note: The Wisconsin Lakes Partnership Convention does not endorse specific products or services. Therefore, posters presented by individuals representing corporations or projects conducted by corporations should avoid the use of trade or brand names and refer to the products or services by a generic descriptor.

This information-packed session will be held from 3:30-4:30 PM on Thursday, April 7. We will move from one presenter right into the next with time for questions after everyone has presented. If you have been chosen to present a Lightning Talk, we encourage you to submit a poster as well; there will be time for you to connect with folks at your poster after the Lightning Talk session.

In addition to being presented to our in-person audience, these talks will also be offered to our live, virtual audience and recorded.

  • Submit up to five slides by April 1, 2022
  • Be ready to present no later than 3:15 PM on Thursday, April 7
  • Keep your time under 5 minutes.
