Call for Volunteers

AASL accepts applications for the Program Reviewers for the AASL 17th National Conference & Exhibition

AASL is currently accepting applications for volunteers to participate in a blind review and scoring of concurrent session proposals for the AASL 17th National Conference & Exhibition, “Experience Education Evolution.” The deadline for applications is Tuesday, December 30, 2014.

Review and scoring of concurrent session proposals via an online database will begin mid-January with a deadline of Friday, Feb. 27, 2015. Each reviewer will be asked to take part in an online training before beginning the review process. The total time commitment is dependent on the number of reviewers selected.

Proposals will be read and scored through a blind review process (reviewers will not have knowledge of who submitted the proposal). Therefore, it is important that all conflicts of interest be reported to the AASL National Conference Program Co-chairs prior to review.

Criteria for reviewers include:

  • Must be a current AASL personal member.

  • Must have access to the Internet between the above dates to review and score applications.

  • Attendance at a past National Conference is preferred, but not required.

Criteria for selection:

This volunteer position is essential to conference planning and the program review committee should reflect a diverse group of practitioners from within the AASL community. Therefore, reviewers will be chosen based on geographical location, number of years in the profession and current job title. Past performance as a program reviewer will also be taken into consideration.
