It’s been almost a month since we shared a peek into what’s going on with 2013 conference planning, and boy has a lot happened since then! Ideas are pouring in for next year’s events, and we are actively seeking volunteers to turn those ideas into reality. With your help, the 2013 committee can be one of the strongest yet.
We’ve also made some progress toward the launch of a brand new conference web site and improved proposal submission system!
One thing we’ve learned, though, is that change takes time. While we previously thought we would be ready to receive your DC conference submissions in November, we now anticipate opening the official Call for Proposals in January. With your help, we’ll get those submissions reviewed and the program planned quickly, so registration might begin as early as March. (One date that won’t change – the conference will be held July 9-12 at the Washington Hilton.)
Again, we can’t do it alone. So please take a minute and let us know how you’d like to help. And watch this space for more news as it becomes available!
November 22 Edit: The online survey previously linked here is now closed. But we’d hate for that to stop you! If you have an interest in helping or a special talent you’d like us to know about, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
