Charge to the Committee

The annual program committee is organized and overseen by the GRA Steering Committee. The program committee is made up of the steering committee chair, one steering committee member and up to five GRA members-at-large. The steering committee chair-elect serves as the chair of the program committee. The committee’s role is to develop a theme and format for the conference; identify plenary speakers; develop the call for submissions, review and select workshops, small group sessions and posters.
Administrative aspects of the meeting, such as the business meeting and steering committee meeting will be organized and lead by AAMC staff and GRA chairs.

Work of the committee is conducted via conference calls and email. The committee holds monthly calls for 5-6 months until the final program is released and again a month before the program takes place. Additional calls with plenary speakers will be required 3-4 months prior to meeting. Time commitment including calls, proposal review and speaker contact averages 4-6 hours a month during production of the program. Committee members are expected to attend the annual conference and help introduce/facilitate sessions as needed during the program.
