The Program Formatting Committee’s mission is to format, proofread, and edit the full conference program and day-at-a-glance schedule. The Committee also looks for conflicts and conformance with SEALS requirements. After the initial program is assembled in the Fall, the Committee reaches out to all attendees in the spring and asks them to help in the review process. After revising the program to incorporate changes submitted by conference participants, as well as any other changes that come to the Committee’s attention, the Committee thoroughly proofreads the program. The Committee then works with a graphic designer on the program layout before sending it to the publisher.

The Program Formatting Committee this year successfully performed its mission: formatting the full conference schedule and day-at-a-glance. The committee worked very well together in proofing the schedule and dealing with a large volume of changes prior to the conference. We also worked with a graphic designer to make the final formatting of the program and day-at-a-glance, and then sent the programs to West to have those documents printed and sent to the hotel.
The other major area for the committee was to continue working with Peter Jetton to update the electronic program submission system. In particular, we frequently sought modifications of the system to better fit with the program layout, which Peter was almost always able to accommodate.
