Programming Ideas for AALL Austin 2017? Now Is the Time to Share Them!

As the TS-SIS liaison to the Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) for Austin 2017, I'd like to remind everyone that crowdsourcing on the IdeaScale platform is now open for AALL members to submit program ideas for the 2017 annual meeting in Austin!

The platform can be accessed here: AALLAnnual Meeting Program Ideas.

In order to participate in crowdsourcing, you must create an IdeaScale account. Your AALL website credentials won't work and even if you used IdeaScale last year, you may still need to create an account to participate this year. I've used it myself and can promise that it's is super easy to add your own ideas and browse and vote for other ideas that strike your fancy. 

It's important to note that submitting program ideas on IdeaScale does not translate in to any obligation! Crowdsourcing is intended to help the AMPC generate a list of must-have program topics that the AMPC will commit to deliver next July in Austin. This is NOT the formal program proposal process, so don't be afraid to just submit a word, a run on sentence, a list -- whatever it takes to get your idea in the mix. 

The formal program proposal process comes later and TS's Professional Development Committee will be available to help you and serve as a resource during the process.

If you have any questions about the AMPC, the proposal process, IdeaScale, or anything related to programming for Austin 2017, please email me at amoye@charlottelaw.edu!
