Get involved in MARAC: Call for Wilmington committee members!

Looking to get involved in MARAC? The Fall 2018 meeting is looking for volunteers to join its Program Committee and the Local Arrangements Committee. Read on for more information about both opportunities!

The conference will be held October 11-13, 2018 at the Hotel DuPont in Wilmington, DE.

Local Arrangements Committee
We need 12-15 MARAC members to join our Local Arrangements Committee (LAC).

LAC members should be located within the vicinity of the meeting site. Though a lot of things can be done by email, there will be some in-person meetings and logistical requirements.

LAC responsibilities include facilitating the logistics for the meeting, such as arranging tours, staffing the registration desk, chaperoning dine-arounds, meeting promotion, and more.

Please note that LAC members will need to attend the entire meeting and should not plan to participate in any panels as presenters.

Program Committee
We need 12-20 MARAC members to join our Program Committee (PC).

PC members need not be located geographically nearby; all work can be done by email.

PC responsibilities include planning the meeting content, such discussion sessions and lunch/plenary speakers.

Please note that committee members will not be allowed to participate in any sessions as chairs or presenters.

If you’re interested in joining either committee, please fill out this short Google form:

The committees will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis and committee members will receive an email confirming their membership.
