Whole Language and More '93 (If I Had It All To Do over Again).
Brewbaker, James M.
Discussing the "Whole Language and More '93" meeting, this paper presents a series of helpful how-to's (and some valuable caveats) for those involved in conference planning. The first part of the paper presents a discussion of 10 steps the conference organizer would take again, including: promoting the conference; organizing various chairs; offering variable registration fees; thinking big and small when formulating a budget; spreading ownership as widely as possible; and offering a variety of conference sites. The second part of the paper discusses 10 things the conference organizer would do differently, including: utilize persons of color more widely and effectively; use professionals to process money and registrations; establish a more realistic timeline for printing the program and assembling the conference packet; secure more cosponsors; charge exhibitors more; and do a better job of giving credit where credit is due.
