Some quick notes on conference planning-

Website is up and running, information being added as we go. Call for proposals, housing information, committee information, logo are up currently. Conference logo was designed by a FLCC student.

Call for proposals went out early January, a second call will go out shortly. Proposals started to come in last week, and are continuing to trickle in this week.
The form can be viewed here -
Call for proposals is posted on the conference website in the blog/updates as well as a placeholder on the Program page.

Local Committee- working steadily on food, local activities. All rooms have been booked for conference activities.

Keynote will be decided and announced shortly.

Vendor letters are finalized and heading out as soon as we finish setting up vendor payments.

If you have any questions, or would like to be involved, please do not hesitate to drop a line my way.

Thanks to everyone who responded to the call for volunteers. We have a planning committee together and will hold our first meeting shortly. If you want to be involved and missed the call for volunteers, send an email my way.

Local accommodations committee has been busy. We have blocks of rooms reserved at two local hotels- Inn on the Lake and Holiday Inn Express. Two other local motels have been made aware of the conference and while they do not reserve blocks/have block rates, they will be sending their rates and room information along. Dorms on campus will also be available. Rooms/spaces on campus have been reserved.

Theme- Broadly, “Openness”. We will be narrowing down on a proper worded theme in the next couple weeks, and are happy to hear ideas or suggestions!
