The Program Committee is primarily a communication tool. It assists in the creation of panel topics and makes suggestions for panelists for the annual SEALS conference. The Program Committee is chaired by SEALS Executive Director Russ Weaver. The committee includes at least one representative from every SEALS institutional member and affiliate member school. The Program Committee exists in part to distribute information about programming and to solicit participation by those at member schools widely and quickly. It is not the only or even the primary avenue for submitting programming suggestions–anyone at an institutional or affiliate member school can do so by filling out the panel submission form online.
Panel proposals for the Annual Meetings are usually accepted beginning October 1st. Proposals can be submitted using the portal on the SEALS home page.
