If you are interested in suggesting a topic for the SIG special topics, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Below is the information and deadlines for submission.
At the 2010 Winter Educators’ Conference, there are two premium time periods during the conference in which all session slots (usually 7 or 8 per time period) are reserved for SIGs to schedule activities that will serve the interests of their members.
These slots are: 1) the second session of the first day and 2) the last session of the second day.
The purpose of this is to guarantee that SIGs have blocks of prime time set aside to request programming for special topical sessions, guest speakers, panels, or other purposes. These slots are prime program spots because one falls just before the annual luncheon (first day) and the other falls at the end of the second day, which allows for that time period to be extended to accommodate receptions following the SIG session.
In their proposals, SIGs should specify if they have a preference for the first day or second day time slot (these will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis). Proposals for these SIG sessions must emanate directly from the leadership of the individual SIGs (i.e., SIG Chair, Vice-Chair for Programs, etc.).
Note that these slots are not for SIG Business Meetings – these will still need to be coordinated with Lynn Brown at AMA (email@example.com). SIG Special session proposals should be submitted using the allacademic Manuscript System.
The deadline for proposal submissions is July 8, 2009. Please contact me if you have any questions. More information can be found at this URL: http://www.marketingpower.com/Community/ARC/Pages/Connections/Conferences/Winter2010/SIGSessionsandProgramming.aspx
