Education Committee 2002 Annual Report
The PLL Education Committee for the Seattle 2003 convention formed
in early November 2001. Carol Gruenburg, Nancy Ciliberti, Amy Ratchford
and Jenny Kanji began their work by
contacting the AMPC chairperson and posting queries
on listservs for people to join the committee and/or recommend
programs. We received very few responses for program ideas.
Many of the responses, in fact,
were from vendor members.
The committee combined these few
program proposals with ideas we developed at a brainstorming session.
We decided to further challenge ourselves by having each committee member
develop a program that was not mentioned by anyone else, either on the
listserv or as a result of our group brainstorming.
The result was four excellent
program ideas. Each
committee member has identified and contacted speakers
for their proposed program and has thought of speakers for a member
proposed program. We
have sixteen program ideas/proposals to sort through
and discuss at the Orlando 2002 convention.
This process will, undoubtedly,
involve dismissing some programs, developing others more fully
and finally, ranking them for AMPC.
