Virtual Presentation FAQ

The Alice Paul Institute uses Zoom Webinar all programming. All presentations are scheduled and hosted on this platform if you are in need of using our hosting services. If your business or group requires live presentations be given on your platform, please make us aware in your request for a virtual presentation.

For a pre-recorded presentation, a private link will be shared for one-time access to our pre-recorded slide presentation. Access is scheduled to start on the date and time coordinated with the Alice Paul Institute staff. The purchasing organization can then share that video in their privately coordinated programming space, whether virtual or in person.

All of our programming is proprietary information developed by the Alice Paul Institute. It may not be recorded or shared online by presentation hosts.
