Hello Communication Committee volunteers!

Based on the Doodle poll we did for Planning Committee, I have come up with the following schedule for communication committee meetings.  Amber, I apologize in advance because I know you did not take part in the Doodle Poll.  However, I have limited time and several committees, so I had to make some quick decisions.  I hope that you can make at least some of these.

The next four meetings are: (Note these are all set in Pacific Time zone)

Monday, Nov. 21  8:00am
Monday, Nov. 28  8:00am
Friday, Dec. 2  8:00am
Tuesday, Dec. 13  9:00am

These are the critical meetings for getting a communication plan together to advertise our progress on the TWSIA planning and to get the information out so that faculty will begin to submit their work in January.  In addition, I am hoping the communication committee will help me create appropriate communication vehicles to get our sponsors on board.

Following the winter holidays, the communication committee will meet in March and April to put together the finalists announcement, awards announcements, and the communication around the winners and their presentations at the Sakai Conference in June.

I know you are all hard workers with lots of experience, so I anticipate we can get through this even with the short timelines.

I will send you separately call in numbers or webconference sites.  Again, thank you for volunteering.
