Got some great ideas for panels? Are you interested in contributing to CONvergence 2017: To Infinity & Beyond’s programming slate? Yes? Great! Because our annual Programming Brainstorming Session is right around the corner and we’d love to see you there!
When: October 23, 2016, 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Where: DoubleTree By Hilton Bloomington
Rooms: Atriums 4, 6, and 7
Address: 7800 Normandale Blvd, Bloomington, MN 55439
You don’t have to have been on a panel or run a panel before to contribute panel ideas. We want panel suggestions from all walks of our diverse and vibrant community! That means you!
For those who are not aware, many of our programming ideas for the next convention are generated at this upcoming October session. Once we have a list of ideas, we proceed to enter them all into our database. By February 1st, our list of ideas goes live and we invite CONvergence members to volunteer as panelists and moderators. For more information, check out our panel scheduling page.
Can’t make the Brainstorming Session?
If you can’t make it to a brainstorming session, we encourage you suggest panels online via our Panel Suggestion Form!
Additionally, If you already have specific ideas for panels that you would like to see, present, or run yourself, please send them to us via the web rather than saving them for the brainstorming session; it’s faster and easier than trying to dictate while a roomful of people are waiting. You are welcome to both submit panel ideas online AND attend the brainstorming session!
Panel suggestions will be accepted until March 1st, 2017. However, they really should be in by February 1st, 2017 to have a good chance of making it onto the CONvergence 2017: To Infinity & Beyond schedule.
