Welcome new members who have indicated interest in serving on the Panels Committee. We need to have a conference call to discuss the process for determining how we are gong to select the conference workshops/sessions/seminars. Continue to post topics you are interested in seeing at the conference and continue to encourage your blogging friends and readers to weigh in.
We will need to draft the guidelines for submitting a workshop proposal, the deadlines, and also discuss the keynotes. If you have some draft guidelines from a previous conference that you have worked on, please post those on the Google Group.
If you have proposed deadlines for the various steps in the process, please post those as well so we can discuss as much as we can online before the meeting. At the conference call, please come prepared to indicate what specific responsibility or role you want to play in the process.
To the new folks, the way this works is I have listed a number of proposed meeting times, you should reply back to bloggingwhilebrown (at)gmail.com indicating which times you are NOT available for a conference call. So in review, don't email me saying when your ARE available. Email me indicating when you are NOT available. As always, even if you are unable to attend, you can have input by providing feedback via email or by posting on the Google Group.
Remind folks that the deadline for early registration is November 1st. We are off to a great start considering we haven't come up with a marketing plan. The folks on the last call can attest to the fact that I stick to schedule.
So here are the proposed times ALL TIMES ARE CST:
MONDAY November 5th
11:30AM to 12:15PM CST
8:00PM to 8:45PM CST
TUESDAY, November 6th
11:30AM to 12:15PM CST
7:00PM to 7:45 PM CST
Wednesday, November 7th
11:30AM to 12:15 CST
8:00PM to 8:45CST
Again, let me know when you are NOT available. If you are not available at all then memorialize your thoughts and send them in an email. We are also looking for someone to act at the Coordinator of the Panels Committee.
If you are interested in serving on any of the conference planning committees, you need to join our Google Group. You can use the widget in the sidebar or you can send an email asking for an invitation to bloggingwhilebrown at gmail dot com.
