The NLS6 Organising Committee met last week to kick off our planning. Here’s what we’re working on at the moment.
Budget and administration
Venues, catering and contracts are being locked down. We’ve been balancing the books to bring you the best possible symposium experience at the lowest possible cost. NLS6 will not cost you the earth, but we will have an earth-shattering program!
Jess and Fiona are looking after the Proposals and Speaker Liaison crew, who are busily preparing a draft call for contributions and working to refine the program model. We have something seriously different in store for you. Start thinking about what you might like to contribute to the NLS6 program!
The Experience team, lead by Alisa and Michelle, are working out the nitty gritty of how they can help you to have a smooth experience as you prepare for your trip to Brisbane, and an awesome time once you get here. They’re going to be bringing you helpful travel information, tips and advice. And they’re also putting together a range of free workshops for NLS6 delegates that will take place the day before the symposium kicks off.
Our Marketing lead Karina is working hard on a marketing plan for the event. She’ll be the one making sure we have good visibility so we can attract a wide range of delegates from different parts of the information professions.
Zaana is working on our sponsorship prospectus and will soon be talking to organisations who’ve already expressed an interest in supporting NLS6.
Our self-proclaimed web monkey Matthias and his co-chair Lisa are working on the symposium website, our proposal submission site and a collaborative space for the committee. They have some pretty cool stuff in the makings so make sure you visit here often.
In keeping with our aim to deliver a very different NLS, in the next few days, you’ll have your first opportunity to input into the direction of the program. Stay tuned for details!
