Guest post by Rebecca Mattson, RIPS-SIS Executive Board Chair
One of my goals as RIPS-SIS Chair is to promote upcoming programming and celebrate accomplishments periodically in the blog. If you have accomplishments to share, or you know of another member’s accomplishments, please email either Shari or me and let us know.
Upcoming RIPS-SIS Programming
Developing Your Program Ideas: An Open Forum to Discuss Proposal Ideas, Wednesday October 20, 12PM CST
Description: The RIPS Program Committee will facilitate a discussion for those presently looking to develop their ideas for 2022 Annual Meeting program proposals. This will be an open discussion where attendees can present ideas and get feedback and critiques from other attendees. All those interested should join the meeting at 12:00pm on Wednesday.
Proposing a Program for AALL 2022, Tuesday November 2, 1PM CST
Description: The AALL 2022 call for proposals will be open throughout October and November-do you have a great program topic in mind? Perhaps you’re wondering what makes a strong proposal, or you have general questions about the proposal process itself. Or maybe you’ve got past experience to share that could benefit first-time proposers. Join Annual Meeting Program Committee Chair Joe Lawson for an informal conversation about putting together fantastic program proposals for next year’s conference. Register here.
Scholarship Committee: 5 Conversations in 5 Days – November 8 – 12, 2021 (more information coming soon!)
