The primary function of the Resource Teams is to encourage additional programming in specific subject areas and consolidate overlapping proposals. The Resource Team members will facilitate inclusive planning discussions and organize program submissions within their fields. Resource Teams are coordinated by the Program Committee Vice-chair, Caprice Roberts. The Vice-chair will match like-minded scholars and proposals with Resource Teams to facilitate coordination of the program. In addition, the Vice-chair will assist resource teams to ensure the visions of the group progress to fruition and enhance the overall SEALS program. The goal of SEALS is to continue broadening dynamic, robust, and diverse program content.
Resource teams are not the only entities that may submit proposals. Other panel and discussion group proposals may go directly through the electronic submission system (link below). SEALS remains committed to an open and democratic submission process. Please contact Russ Weaver (SEALS Executive Director & Program Committee Chair), Linda Jellum (SEALS Deputy Executive Director), and Caprice Roberts (Program Committee Vice-chair) if you have any programming questions.

The Vice Chair is building Resource Teams now. The list below includes those already created. Many more are in progress. Please feel free to contact the Vice-chair should you have any questions and also reach out to Resource Teams in any particular areas of interest.
SEALS prides itself on the fact that anyone can create content for SEALS. Thus, if you have an idea and sufficient interest, simply make a submission. If you need more speakers and suggestions, we encourage you to reach out to the Vice Chair and the Resource Teams. As always, we will be glad to find additional speakers of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints to add to your panel and discussion group proposals.
