  • Continue to develop and support Collaboration Labs.
  • Within existing constraints (time, resources, contractual obligations to hotel), incorporate alternative session formats (e.g., unmeetings, vendor forums)
  • Attract individuals from beyond the AAUP community – both as speakers and attendees.
  • Establish a draft program schedule by October 2016. Provide outline of the program in an October report to the Board. Recruit program speakers by February 2017.
  • Submit a proposed allocation of the speakers’ budget to the Central Office by February 2017.
