CALL FOR PROCEEDINGS RECORDERS
Allyson Zellner, Proceedings Co-Editor
NASIG is seeking conference recorders for the preconference, vision, and tactics sessions at this year’s annual conference in Phoenix. Recorders are asked to attend specific sessions, take notes and then synthesize the notes into a readable, comprehensive report of the session for the conference Proceedings. For vision sessions, recorders may be asked to listen to recordings of a presentation and work with the speaker to create a report for publication in the Proceedings.
Reporters will work under the general direction of the Proceedings editors. Editors for the 2008 Proceedings are Buddy Pennington, Allyson Zellner, and Carol Ann Borchert.
If you are a NASIG member with the ability to write clear, organized prose, and who is able to submit a report by Friday, July 18, 2008, please consider this opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the organization.
To apply, submit a letter of application by e-mail to:
