There are many reasons to present your research:
  • It helps prepare you for future research at the graduate level or in a professional career.
  • It demonstrates a serious commitment to advancing your field.
  • It enables you to not only hone writing and public speaking skills, but opens you up to a network of potential colleagues.
  • It is one of the best opportunities to be recognized for your work and to share ideas and findings with others.
In order for society and yourself, to reap the benefits of your research make sure it is disseminated widely.
