OK, so we merge those where I said "2 groups" into one super group of 18 or so - that was just a way of saying these were so large they might be unwieldy and we weren't putting them down as 2 groups in the program.  We were trying to slot the more popular topics into rooms by themselves, where they wouldn't dominate the other group.  But you're right, you couldn't have one person leading two groups, even if they were in the same rooms.  But we could acknowledge the popularity of them by giving them a room alone.

We thinking of making a cardstock flyer for the bags to tell people to sign up for the 2 sessions they are interested in attending - we thought it's kind of a lot to do at once when you're registering could get hectic & crowded) & the flyer would be a reminder to stop by the registration desk & signup if they didn't when they checked in.

And we totally left off the AHIP topic again, but we could set them up in the pre-function area if anyone signs up for it.
Yes, we'll handle the signup sheets here.  This is the last list I received - if it has changed, please let me know.

I have had a wild and wooly day - so I am slow to respond.

Yes, sign up sheets at registration seem to be the best way to go.

No, the way you have it set up might not work so well.  The 2 groups of
Statistics and the 2 groups of Reference need to be 1 in each session,
instead of 2 at the same time.  I might not find another leader for the
2nd group and I could probably talk the same person into doing it twice.

I am not really excited about this format.  You really are only allowing
8 or 10 people at a table, 2 of which are the leader and the
that means 6 or 8....and all of your lists are already too long for a
single session.  I haven't double checked the lists yet, (and meant to
before I responded but I am running out of time and won't be here
tomorrow) but I don't think the leaders or scribes or on the lists as
they stand now.

If you, Nancy, are going to take care of sign-in sheets, I will send you
the names that need to head each table.  OR  I can set up some sign-in
sheets and send them to you electronically. 

I don't envy you this job you have!

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.
