AAZV is interested in connecting with those interested in chairing a session or being a poster chair for the 2020 AAZV conference in Nashville, TN. Please consider submitting your name to the Scientific Program Committee (SPC). Chairing a session involves reviewing abstracts, communicating presentation information to the speakers, and managing the session at the conference. Poster chairs review abstracts, and communicate presentation information to speakers. If it's not your year to come to the conference, you can still help from home! We will need 6 poster chairs, but only 1-2 need to be at the conference to help guide poster hanging. Session and poster chairs should expect to dedicate time during March and April of 2020 to efficiently review and score approximately 15-30 submitted abstracts. The approximate deadline for completion of all reviews is currently April 16th. Session chairs must be members of AAZV or EAZWV.
When selecting session chairs, the SPC will take into consideration the areas of expertise and experience of the candidate, prior session chair experience (although those without prior experience are welcome), and ability to attend the conference. Please contact either Alicia Hahn (email@example.com) or Sam Rivera (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested.
