Call for Discussion Groups and User Groups
The NASIG Program Planning Committee (PPC) invites ideas for topics and volunteers for session facilitators for discussion groups and user groups at the 25th annual conference (http://www.nasig.org/conference_registration.cfm) in Palm Springs, California, June 3-6, 2010.
Informal discussion groups serve to promote discussion among NASIG attendees who have a shared interest in a topic, idea, workflow, or problem. The emphasis of these sessions is open discussion and the generation of new ideas. The facilitator must be registered for the full conference. Informal discussion groups will take place on Saturday, June 5, 3:30-4:30 p.m. Please submit topics or volunteer to facilitate a discussion group using this form, http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2XWP58G.
User group sessions are dedicated to a specific product or service. The purpose of these sessions is to share product implementation or development experiences and ideas. User group attendees will have an opportunity to discuss topics of common interest in a non-commercial setting. The facilitator must be registered for the full conference. The user groups will meet on Sunday, June 6, 8:45-9:45 a.m. Please submit suggestions for products/services or volunteer to run a user group using this form, http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2NDVBWK.
All suggestions will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the NASIG PPC and notifications will be made by the end of April.
Proposals and suggestions will be accepted until Friday April 16, 2010.
Inquiries may be sent to the PPC co-chairs, Morag Boyd and Anne Mitchell at: email@example.com
