UPA 2002: Humanizing Design
The UPA 2002 conference committee is busy planning for next year's
conference in Orlando, Florida, at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, July
8-12. The newly formed 2002 committee began its activities at the 2001
conference during the Volunteer Participation lunch, which 22 people
attended. Our first visible activity has been a post-conference Web survey
asking attendees at the 2001 conference questions about hotel
accommodations, food preferences, and plans for bringing family members to
the 2002 conference.
The committee is currently preparing the Call for Participation for the
2002 conference and will notify UPA members when it is available online
(printed copies will also be mailed). Please make sure the UPA office has
your current email and mailing addresses. In addition, the committee is
reviewing the evaluations from the 2001 conference to address areas of
improvement and to note which speakers, tutorials, and presentations were
the most highly rated and why.
If you have questions about conference planning or would like to
volunteer, please email the conference co-chairs Laurie Kantner and Joseph
Kramer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
