Successful Conference Programming Methods. Your Guide to Effective Planning and Administration.
This guidebook is intended to help conference program planners in their jobs. The book is organized in four sections. Section One introduces the book, establishes reasons for having a conference, suggests alternative program models, and describes the coordinator's roles. Section Two describes the process of conference planning. Chapter 1 of this section examines time, money, and budgets, and Chapter 2 discusses facilities, promotion, registration, special arrangements, and the planner's fee. In Section Three, onsite realities of the program and evaluation are discussed; the final section concerns the aftermath of the program--financial "clean up," final evaluation, and planning for next time. An appendix to the guide, which makes up about half of the booklet, contains checklists, idea sheets, a bibliography, and sheets for planning. (KC)
