    CEL Convention Speaker License and Release Agreement

    In connection with the 2024 Conference on English Leadership (“CEL”) Annual Convention (“Convention”), I (“Speaker”) have agreed to present individually or as part of a group or panel (collectively herein referred to as the “Presentation”). My Presentation and all of my contributions to it, including the content of my comments, presentation, speeches, written materials, audio and/or visual presentations, or videos, are collectively referred to herein as the “Works.”

    I understand that CEL, as part of its mission, is devoted to improving the teaching and learning of English and the language arts at all levels of education. I represent that my Presentation will support this mission and not deviate from it, in whole or in part. I also understand that my Presentation proposal (“Proposal”) has gone through a detailed review process and has been accepted to the Convention program by CEL members and/or staff. In accepting me as a Speaker, I understand that CEL has relied on the content and representations made in my Proposal, including but not limited to descriptions, titles, speakers, and Works contained therein. I understand that I am prohibited from making any material changes, additions, or deletions to my Presentation as described in my Proposal without express written approval of CEL.

    I represent and warrant that the Works are original to me and/or the author(s) who have authorized me to use and grant rights on their behalf. I also represent and warrant that the use of the Works by CEL will not in any way infringe upon the rights of others, and that I have the full power to make this grant on behalf of myself and/or the author(s) and that this Agreement does not conflict with any prior obligations.

    I grant CEL permission to publicly display, broadcast, and distribute the Works. I further grant CEL the nonexclusive right to use my name, voice, session descriptions, photograph, and likeness (collectively, “Likeness”) in connection with the Convention and future conventions, including to promote the Convention and future conventions. I waive any right to inspect or preapprove the use of the Works or my Likeness, or any content that may be used in connection therewith. I release CEL from any liability concerning any blurring, distortion, alteration, or editing, whether intentional or otherwise, that may occur or be produced in using the Works. CEL agrees not to sell or license the Works without the express written consent of the Speaker.

    CEL has no obligation to use the Works or Likeness in any way, and no obligation to pay any royalties for any of the rights and permissions provided herein.

    I understand that as a Speaker at the Annual Convention, I am required to register for the Convention and pay the appropriate registration fee(s). If I fail to register or to let CEL know that I can no longer participate as a Speaker by the cancellation deadline of November 1, I understand that I will be responsible for paying the registration rate and an invoice will be issued for that fee.
