Dear District 53 Leaders,
I'm pleased to announce that Walter Beveridge has been appointed as our first Conference Dean. He'll be working on our Fall '08 and Spring '09 Conferences.
Responsibilities for this new position are listed below. Special thanks go to Karin von Kaenel for creating this new position.
District Conference Dean
This is a multi-year assignment and is intended to provide support and continuity to our conference committees. The Conference Dean is somebody who has experience with organizing a conference and can therefore give solid advice on how to proceed at each phase of the project. In addition, the Dean advises the LGET on the process of organizing and conducting conferences:
· Points the conference team to existing helpful material (previous budget, agenda, spreadsheets, etc.)
· Links the new team to previous teams
· Meets regularly with the conference team to track progress and answer questions
· Apprises the LGET of potential problems.
