The Conference Planning Committee is looking for a local representative or representatives for the 2015 conference in Philadelphia.
We already have someone looking into the area restaurants, but other responsibilities would include drawing attention to cultural activities, special exhibitions, library holdings that may be of special interest to our members, among other possibilities.
Advertising the conference specifically to local colleges and universities would also be helpful.
We also need practical advice on transportation, taxis, etc., and perhaps some on the ground, last minute things that can’t be done from a distance. This would not be onerous.
Please let us know if you are interested/willing/able to volunteer for this: SSAWW2015.firstname.lastname@example.org
Best wishes for the term to you all,
Rita on behalf of the Conference Planning Committee
