Dear Section Chairs and Chairs-Elect,
This edition of The Section Counselor features podcast recordings of Annual Meeting sessions available in the members-only section of the AALS website. Please visit http://aals.org/podcasts to view all of our podcast offerings. Scroll down to see a small sampling of available sessions from the 2016 Annual Meeting in New York City.
As we get closer to the 2017 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, to be held from January 3-7, 2017, you might consider how you will use the podcast recordings of your Section’s program to reach an even wider audience after the meeting. Indeed, many Annual Meeting attendees find there is simply not enough time to attend all of the meeting programs they would like to attend in person. As a Section chair, you might consider informing your members about the availability of the podcast recordings as a great way to virtually attend programs of interest that your members could not attend in person.
AALS is here to help you get the message out about the podcast recordings of your Section’s annual meeting programs. You might consider working directly with AALS’s Director of Communications, Jim Greif at email@example.com to share the podcast with reporters covering topics that are relevant to your Section. Or, you might consider creating a page on your Section’s members-only website listing all of your Section’s past recorded sessions. Section chairs may edit their own site directly or contact AALS staff at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
We would love to hear from you about what you think about podcasts as a resource for Sections. Please feel free to drop a note with our Manager of Section Services, Patrick Riley at email@example.com. Patrick is eager to help you make the most of your leadership of an AALS Section this year!
