Program Planning Committee

Page history last edited by Meg Kribble 11 years, 8 months ago

The Program Planning Committee is charged with  soliciting, coordinating, and submitting programs for the AALL Annual Meeting that meet the basic and advanced educational needs of the CS-SIS Membership. Per the 2011 Strategic Plan, it aids in executing Strategic Direction III: Education.


The Program Planning Committee is chaired by the CS-SIS Chair. The Vice Chair, Senior Member at Large, chair of the Education Committee, and a new (<4 year) member of the profession identified by the Recruitment and Involvement Committee Chair make up the rest of the committee, with the Senior MAL in charge of non-AMPC programming.  The remainder of the Executive Board assists in prioritizing the submission of the programs.


Led by its chair, the committee:

  • solicits program ideas from the Membership
  • suggests revisions of proposals based on AALL guidelines and best practices (suggestion: ask proposal writers to send drafts to the Chair ten days before AMPC deadline to allow time for review)
  • seeks other AALL SIS and AALL Committee programming partners when appropriate
  • after list of accepted programs has been received from AMPC, identify programs, roundtables and workshops which CS may want to sponsor ourselves


The chair:

  • schedules and presides at program planning meeting at the CALI Conference
  • presides at program planning meeting at prior year's AALL annual meeting
  • prepares list of program ideas, who recommended, possible speakers & coordinators; updates the planning page on the wiki
  • coordinates program proposals by CS members
  • makes sure program proposals are submitted on time to AMPC
  • after AMPC sends back list of all submitted CS sponsored programs, prioritizes programs with assistance of Executive Board
  • prepares the time schedule (matrix) for all CS-sponsored activities at the AALL annual meeting, including section-sponsored programs, business and board meetings, standing and ad hoc committee meetings, and roundtables
  • reports briefly on the committee's activities at the CS-SIS business meeting
  • submits a written report to the CS-SIS Chair detailing the committee's activities according to the deadline set by the Chair each year; sends a copy of the report to the Secretary / Treasurer
