CG Activity Options at Regional Conferences
Hi All, Lida Larson of EDUCAUSE has asked us to consider having a presence at regional conferences. These are smaller, more intimate gatherings than the EDUCAUSE annual conference, and therefore could be a great channel for having meaningful discussions related to accessibility. Lida has specifically requested proposals for specific activities during specific time slots: · One hour Meeting/Discussion Session on the first morning in the ‘pre-conference’ time block (between 8:30 am -12:30 pm) · Posters in the morning before the Opening General Session (10 am – 12:45 pm) We print your posters and have them shipped to the venue. We will have corporate displays in this same time slot. · Lunchtime Roundtables on the second day – 12:30-1:30 That said, she has also expressed a willingness to entertain alternative ideas. Below are the dates and deadlines for each of the regional conferences: Mid-Atlantic @ Baltimore (Jan 11-13) - Deadline = November 21st (ALREADY PAST) West/Southwest @ Portland (Feb 22-24) - Deadline =December 19th Midwest @ Chicago (Mar 26-28) - Deadline = January 31st Southeast @ Tampa May 30-Jun 1) - Deadline = March 28th If you're interested in participating in your region, please contact Lida at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to share your interest and ideas with this list as well.
