The registrations are really rolling in for the ArchivesSpace Member Meeting being held in Cleveland on August 22. Thanks for your enthusiastic interest!

The Program Committee is seeking suggestions and volunteers to facilitate and speak at the breakout sessions during the second half of the program (see the breakout session topics proposed at https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/display/ADC/ArchivesSpace+Member+Meeting+2015). Like the ArchivesSpace community itself, these sessions are going to be very participant-driven and your participation is crucial.

Here's what we're looking for:

Facilitators: Breakout session facilitators will lead discussions, help keep discussions on track and make sure every session attendee who wants to be heard is. When there are speakers for the session, the facilitator will touch base with them ahead of time about their presentations and ensure that they speak within their allotted amount of time on the day. A Program Committee member or ArchivesSpace team member will take care of the logistics for the session (room, AV, etc.); the facilitator will be in charge of shaping the content and experience for the participants.

Speakers: Have you been working on something related to one of the proposed topics that you'd love to share with your colleagues? Are you working on something on a topic not already proposed that you'd like to share? Speakers will give short, informal presentations of planned work or work in progress and also set the table for wider discussions. For most of the topics, we envision these being lightning-type talks (i.e. 5-7 minutes), but presentations could be longer depending on what's needed to explain your work and how many other speakers volunteer for a particular session.

Please send your ideas or volunteer yourself by emailing me, or get a discussion going on the Users Group listserv or the wiki. Please indicate the topic and what you (or the person you're volunteering) can offer towards it. We'll aim to notify everyone by mid-July so that all facilitators and speakers will have plenty of time to prepare before the meeting. And if you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks in advance!
