|Even though this year’s meeting just ended, it is now time to submit program proposals for next year’s AALL meeting in Boston. RIPS is eager to sponsor programs for next year’s conference. Here is a link to next year’s program proposal site: http://proposals.aallnet.org/. The deadline to submit your proposal is September 15, 2011. However, the earlier you can submit your proposal to RIPS, the more feedback our program committee can give you. Ideally, if you could share your proposals with us by Tuesday, September 6, that should ensure sufficient time for the program committee to review your proposal and provide feedback.While putting together your proposal, please review the Information for Program Proposers, available at http://www.aallnet.org/main-menu/Education/events/planner-info/program-proposers. This site should provide answers to all of your program proposal questions.Also, all programs must fit within one of the following tracks:
More information about program tracks may be found at http://www.aallnet.org/main-menu/Education/events/planner-info/program-proposers/program-tracks.html.
Alternatively, if you have a general idea about a program, but your proposal is not complete, feel free to email it to me at email@example.com and I will forward it to our programming committee which will provide feedback and suggestions to help you craft your proposal. Then, ultimately, you can submit your proposal via the program proposal site.
When you are ready to submit your proposal to the AALL program proposal site, please also share it with Jason Sowards at firstname.lastname@example.org by clicking “Share” and entering my email address. This will allows the RIPS programming committee to review your proposal and provide comments. Again, if you wish to receive feedback from the RIPS program committee, you must share your program proposal with me by September 6 before officially submitting the program to AALL because, once you hit “Submit,” it’s off to the Annual Meeting Program Committee to decide its fate.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you and I look forward to working with you in continuing the tradition of excellent RIPS-sponsored programming at the annual meeting!
