Why aren't any downloads posted in Precis Abstract Management?

    Every year I look forward to downloading and sometimes printing the handouts from the sessions I enjoyed at the NAEYC Conference.  In recent years presenters have printed fewer of their handouts, because they can be downloaded.  I just looked for presentations to download for my itinerary, and there were none.  What's happened?  I hope they get up soon.
    How long will they be kept up online, once they're posted?

    Finding the instructions on how to post handouts took me a little while. Here is the information from the NAEYC website:

    https://www.naeyc.org/events/annual/2018/presenter-info 

    To upload your handouts, go to the link below and follow the instructions below:

    http://precis.preciscentral.com/User/UserLogin.asp?Action=Revise&EventID=07a96b1f

    Enter the user name and password of the original submitter

    • Select the proposal to which you want to attach a handout
    • Click the link that says "click here to edit upload handout"
    • Attach your document and click "upload files"
    • To ensure that you uploaded the correct file, click on the file to view it
    • To save and close, click Save and Continue

     Please note the following file upload limits:

    • Limited to a maximum size of 5 MB
    • Limited to theses file types: .doc, .docx, .pdf, .ppt, .pptx, .wpd, .ppt, .pptx

    Handouts will be accessible via the online itinerary planner.

    Once I uploaded files for my session I noticed that it takes some time for the files to be added to my session listed on the online itinerary planner, the Precis Abstract Management of the Conference Schedule: http://precis.preciscentral.com/utils/ip/FindPresentation.asp?EventId=07a96b1f&Presenter=True&bhjs=1&bhqs=1 

    To see the handouts you click on the title of the session to open a small pop-up window describing the session, and scroll to the bottom of that window where handouts are listed and linked. Click on the handout file title to download.

    The conference had many more sessions that I wanted to attend than there was time!

    As a presenter, I don't remember getting information to post to precis this year.  Maybe I missed it.
