Join us at the TS-SIS Education Committee Meeting
Tuesday, July 11, 2006, 11:45 AM-1:00 pm
America's Center, Room 125

While it may seem way too earlier to think about AALL in 2007, we need
to plan now due to the very short time-frame for submitting program
ideas after the 2006 Annual meeting. We have lots of flexibility to
propose learning opportunities that are important to us, but we need
your ideas! If you would like TS-SIS to consider sponsoring your
program, please read on ...

The theme for the 2007 meeting in New Orleans is "Rise to the
Challenge." See the incoming 2006/07 AALL President Sarah (Sally)
Holterhoff's description here.

Deadline if Requesting TS-SIS Sponsorship
Final deadline for submitting your program, workshop or topic to the
TS-SIS Education Committee is Friday, August 4, 2006, 5:00 pm PDT.

All TS-SIS Education Committee members are available to assist you. We
are open to collaborating with other SIS's or committees. And don't
limit your presentation to the traditional 3 talking-head panels. See
page 18 in the Handbook for alternative presentation formats.

1. Refer to the Program Planners Handbook for more information.

2. Beginning on p. 32 of the Handbook are step-by-step guidelines
for using the online web site to create your proposal.

3. You do not need to complete your proposal in one session. You
can save your work in progress and log back in as many times as needed
to complete your proposal.

4. If you are seeking TS-SIS sponsorship, identify TS-SIS as the
sponsor (or co-sponsor).

5. When you have completed your proposal, enter both the TS-SIS
Education Committee e-mail address: and
Rhonda Lawrence's e-mail address: Next, when
you are ready to share it with the TS-SIS Education Committee, click on
the button that says "Share." Your proposal will then be automatically
sent to TS-SIS Education Committee and to Rhonda Lawrence to review.

6. IMPORTANT: Do not click on the "Submit Proposal" button until
you have heard from the TS-SIS Education Committee. If you click on
the "Submit Proposal" button, the proposal goes directly to AMPC and you
will no longer be able to revise it.

When will TS-SIS notify people about sponsorship?
We will notify everyone who has submitted a proposal to TS-SIS no later
than Thursday August 10, 2006, whether we will sponsor your program.
Individuals may choose to submit any programs to directly AMPC they like
without our sponsorship.

Plan to attend the TS-SIS Education Committee meeting, Tuesday, July 11,
2006 from 11:45 AM-1:00 pm, in America's Center, Room 125.
