I am pleased to announce the names of the twelve members who will comprise the ASC 2012 national conference planning committee.
Below is the list of committee members with the briefest of mentions about each person. The comment ‘New member’ basically means an early career person with energy to offer and a willingness to gain experience.
We will soon appoint a member to serve as the conference chair for the entire committee. The position will require someone with experience and a bit of time. I will recommend to the National Council to co-opt the conference chair to the ASC Executive and National Council to ensure regular updates on the progress of the committee.
The committee is responsible for or will advise the Executive in the appointment of a Professional Conference Organiser; selecting the date, city and venue for the next conference; develop the program; and look after other conference related tasks.
Committee meetings will be held by Skype teleconference as much as possible.
The first group Skype teleconference will be in January.
ASC members will be kept informed of significant progress. I hope we all will contribute ideas and support for the conference development process ahead.
