Committee Purpose:  The Workshop Planning Committee (WPC) is responsible for the schedule of workshops for the ATI Annual Conference and General Meeting. WPC solicits workshop proposals from members and non-members in the first quarter of each year, based on the theme of the Annual Conference as decided by the Site Committee and the Board. The program for the Annual Conference is created from these proposals. WPC works with individual workshop presenters, the Agenda Planning Committee, Site Committee, the International Committee and the Board to ensure the proper mix of onsite and virtual workshops, business meetings, and social events.

Committee Purpose:  The purpose of the Agenda Planning Committee is to plan the agendas for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) that happens during the ATI Annual Conference.  We accomplish our purpose by

  • collecting any policy proposals that the board, a committee or an individual wants to present to ATI members;
  • collecting any reports from the Board or Committees;
  • working with people who want to present a proposal to be sure that their proposal is well crafted;
  • assembling the Facilitation and Agenda Coordinating team for each year’s AGM, to plan each meeting’s agenda, including changing the agendas as needed.
