Conference Committee

The Conference Committee shall consist of the Society Conference Committee Chair, who shall serve as an ex-officio voting Board member, the Society Treasurer, the President and 1st Vice-President as ex-officio members, and at least two additional members. The Conference Committee Chair shall be appointed by the Nominations and Appointments Committee, with approval of the Board. In turn, the Conference Committee Chair will appoint at least two additional members, also with approval of the Board. Typically the chair and members of the Committee will serve for three years, with members serving in staggered terms.

While the Board retains responsibility for deciding on major policy issues and approving specific Symposium and Workshop proposals, the Conference Committee shall be responsible for providing oversight of technical meetings on behalf of the Board, including (i) making recommendations to the Board regarding Society sponsorship of proposed technical meetings, (ii) monitoring forthcoming technical meeting proposals, soliciting new proposals, and coordinating organizing teams as needed, (iii) maintaining helpful guidelines and suggestions for the preparation of proposals, for conducting Workshops and Symposia, and for preparing final reports, and (iv) ensuring that Board-approved policies governing technical meetings are properly followed by the organizers.
