First, I like the schedule, especially since it puts Karen Vargas in the 2nd round of sessions. Since the Go Local session was left off the original list, the main participants did not get funded to attend the meeting. Actually, the person who proposed the idea (but didn't want to lead the discussion because she is pretty new to SCC), has subsequently lost her job. That would have left me alone with the Go Local. So, thank you for that.

Second, I like the idea of the blank sign-up sheets. I think folks should have a chance to re-think what sessions they want to attend.

That is my 2 cents worth.

Subject: Roundtables schedule

OK, we're up against deadlines for the program (must go to printers this week) and here's what we have proposed, based on expression of interest.
We have taken into account the fact that certain sessions cannot take place at the same time... AND we've checked the list of people who should be in the Executive Board meeting to make sure none of them had signed up for the second session (because the board meeting will be opposite Session 2).  In the attached file, ignore the parenthetical 'checkbox' - that refers to the database name of that field.

There was a suggestion for signup sheets at the registration table that would be pre-populated by what people had checked off on the registration form.  I suggest that everyone would be better served by blank signup sheets.  If you look carefully at the attachment, you will see that a number of people signed up for many sessions - and you can only attend 2.  The registration form asked people to 'select discussions you are interested in so we can arrange rooms'.  In my opinion, we really should have said something about only 2 simultaneous discussions will be occurring so people weren't misled into thinking that they could participate in as many as they wanted.  Yes, it was in the program, but not on the form.  
But the signup sheets aren't my immediate concern - the schedule is. 

If you have objections to this schedule, please voice them by tomorrow afternoon.  If you think any should be canceled before we send this to the printer, let me know.
