Established by the RBMS Executive Committee at the 1993 Midwinter Meeting 25 January 1993; seminar development previously fell within the charge of the Education and Professional Development Committee. All seminar organizers should receive from the committee chair a copy of the Procedures for Organizing and Selecting Preconference Seminars as soon as approval to plan a seminar is received. The Seminars Committee chair must work closely with the Preconference Program Planning Committee chair to make sure that seminar organizers adhere to the deadlines for preconference planning.
Deadlines: Preconference seminars with budget implications must be approved by the section chair and the Preconference Program Planning Committee chair no later than a year before the preconference, when final preconference budget revisions are made. A preliminary schedule of seminars is due at the ALA Annual Conference preceding the preconference. A final schedule of seminars with the names of the seminars and seminar participants is due by March 1 before the preconference when copy is due for the preconference publicity/registration brochure.
