Notifications will be sent out to all presenters in early January. This phase is usually done in two parts: a first set of selection emails is sent out by the Education Coordinators. The review scores and comments will also be forwarded to the presenters. This is a chance to update any content areas based on the review comments (you can add or remove instructors but instructors who were not on the original application will not receive a presenter registration).
Presenters will be asked to confirm their intention to present by January 25, 2019 and receive additional steps at that time to complete as a “confirmed” workshop. Once all checklist items are complete, the presenter/s will receive registration information. Presenters should book hotel rooms no later than early January.
Presenters may also be asked if they would be willing to be added to a wait list in case of cancellations and will be notified as soon as a decision is made. To avoid price increases in registration, wait list presenters should register at the current rate and make their hotel reservations for the best pricing. If selected to present, your basic registration fee would be reimbursed.
If your workshop is not selected, we hope you will still plan to attend the weekend. Also consider teaching as part of 12T workshops to gain experience and a possible workshop slot for the next year. The 12T Workshop (Submitting proposals for 12-minute talks that are evaluated by the audience during the workshop) is another way to gain experience. Also, the top presenter in this workshop is offered a workshop slot for the following year. This can provide valuable experience at the IMsLBB Weekend and a chance to “dip your toes” into the workshop facilitating world! Another great option, if you’re watching costs, is to consider volunteering!
