Code4Lib 2014 Committees
If you are interested in helping out with a particular part of the Code4Lib 2014 conference, create an account on this wiki and sign-up for one or more of the groups below (called 'committees' for lack of a better term). Each committee should select a committee lead that will coordinate the activities of the committee and its work with the hosting site. Discussions of a non-sensitive nature should take place on the Code4LibCon mailing list for transparency and future reference. Please feel free to improve the summary statements for each of the committees.
We hope to include at least one local person on each committee.
Book Give-Away Committee
This committee solicits books and other prizes to be given away in raffles during the Code4Lib 2014 conference.
This committee organizes the sponsorship activities. For 2014, this responsibility will include evaluating new levels of sponsorship that provide new types of benefits to sponsors (ex: vendor tables in the conference area, handouts / flyers, etc.). Usually it includes people within the Code4Lib community who think their institution or company might be interested in sponsoring the conference. These folks may not be the decision makers at the sponsors, but they are Code4Lib's contacts.
Keynote Speakers Committee
This committee plans who to invite for the keynote speakers. They gather possibilities (including soliciting from the community), organize voting, and work with the speakers to arrange their travel.
This committee plans the structure of the program, arranges the voting on presentations, etc. This includes soliciting both pre-conferences and regular talks. These folks will also manage the flow of the program at the conference -- introducing speakers or soliciting other volunteers to MC.
This committee works with funding institutions to arrange the scholarships offered. They solicit submissions and select winners of the scholarship(s). They also work with the winners to plan their travel and arrangements.
This committee organizes the t-shirt contest, collecting submissions, and putting out the call for votes.
Social Activities Committee
The committee plans, proposes, and organizes the evening activities.
Voting Activities Committee
This committee organizes the voting process and works with the other committees that involve voting (keynote, program, T-shirt) to ensure a relatively smooth process.
