Poster Board Number: 164
Title: Rethinking Face to Face
Objective: In light of an increase in inexpensive conferencing software coupled with the decrease in both travel budgets and chapter members available to plan our annual meetings, the association formed a task force to analyze alternatives to our tradition of geographically rotated, locally planned, yearly, face-to-face chapter meetings.
Methods: For the purposes of our analysis:
• We reviewed the purpose of our face-to-face annual meetings. To do so, we reviewed the chapter and national bylaws as well as member comments from the preceding year’s meeting.
• We searched the literature for articles on the value of conferences, both virtual and face to face.
• We surveyed chapter members about their experience with and impressions of virtual meetings and conferences.
• We examined several existing conferencing software products.
• We held a members forum at the fall 2010 association meeting for additional input.
Results and Conclusions: My results and conclusions are not complete yet.
