One common request we receive as AKA members, is to provide information about killies to others. It’s not unusual that an AKA member is a member of other fish clubs, like a local aquarium society, and local aquarium clubs always need speakers. In order to make it easier for members to present information about killies to their local aquarium clubs, the AKA has created a Digital Presentation Program that you can use. Through this program, you as an AKA member can obtain presentations, produced by the AKA, that you can show at your local club. The presentations are in Microsoft Powerpoint format. In addition, AKA will provide a free 1 year membership for you to donate to the club; that club can pass on that membership however they choose, for example by auction or raffle. In addition, if you give a presentation at a general aquarium society, you are eligible for points towards the Killifish Hobbyist of the Year program. Please visit aka.org for information on the KHY.
How it works: To obtain the presentation, simply e-mail your name and e-mail address to email@example.com. The coordinators will send you a link you can use to download the presentation, in Powerpoint format. A typical presentation is around 30-40 megabytes, so you’ll need a little free space on your computer for the download. Once you have the contact information for the new member, send that to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure that the contact information contains the recipient’s name, address and e-mail address.
Available presentations: Currently, there is “An Introduction to Killifish – AKA 2014″ available. More presentations are in the works; expect to see updates in future issues of the BNL Any questions on this program, please feel free to e-mail email@example.com
