New in 2014: Schedule Adjustments
The 2013 meeting participant survey confirmed that meeting participants valued the extra time for informal conversations and networking that was built into the 2013 annual meeting schedule. In 2014, we will continue to create opportunities for informal engagement by offering a long lunch and other unscheduled hours.
However, this year, general sessions will not be scheduled for Wednesday, the first day of the meeting. All panels proposed by AFS members will be scheduled Thursday through Saturday, as in years past.
Instead, for those who can attend on Wednesday, we are working on local and Section-sponsored programming at the Convention Center, in addition to professional development workshop and tours. The opening ceremony and plenary address will take place as usual on Wednesday evening.
