(This is a good call for students who are in or want to be in graduate school, individuals who are looking for academic jobs as there is always a career fair, and people who want to do some academic networking. I’ve been and presented a handful of times but won’t be able to attend this year due to the timing. -Monica)

The calls:
Workshops: Requesting proposals for workshops held at the beginning and close of annual conference. These may include presentations, panels, group discussions, invited speakers, or any other program which may be of interest to members. ITAA is now accepting proposals from resource vendors.

Special Topic Sessions: Requesting proposals for sessions to be held during the annual meeting. These may include presentations, panels, small group discussions, or any other program which may be of interest to members.
