Boston is Going Global!
Program Planning for 2004 Annual Meeting
Submitted by Jean M. Wenger
Spring is here. Seattle is on our minds, but Boston is on the horizon. Program planning has begun for the 2004 AALL Annual Meeting in Boston. The theme for the 2004 meeting focuses on globalization and international issues. This is an excellent time to consider programs that can enhance the work life and professional interests of FCIL members. This is a wonderful opportunity for our SIS to highlight and share our knowledge and experience with fellow FCIL and AALL members for a truly global Annual Meeting.
What are possible program topics? Actually, anything in the world. Consider foreign and international topics of interest. Are there jurisdictions that you would like to see addressed? Important issues concerning the maintenance and growth of a foreign, comparative and international law collection? Programs at all levels: advanced, intermediate and introductory, are in demand. Be creative! Program slots are for 30, 60, 75 and 90 minutes. Do not fret if you have never written a program proposal, ready and willing help is available from the FCIL Education Committee, the program planning book and the Annual Meeting Program Committee.
The program planning books for Boston will be available in the near future. More information on the program planning process will be posted to the FCIL listserv, as it becomes available. Please contact the Education Committee co-chairs, Mirela Roznovschi (firstname.lastname@example.org), Dennis Sears (email@example.com) or Vice-Chair, Jean Wenger (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your ideas and questions.
