Creating a Session Proposal for SAA Annual Meetings

Interested in proposing a session for SAA2013 in New Orleans? The Manuscript Repositories Section is here to help you create a successful session proposal for upcoming SAA Annual Meetings.  In San Diego we will be hosting a breakout group at the end of the section meeting at SAA2012 for members to meet and discuss ideas for proposals. This time you can let your imagination run wild because there is no official theme for next year's annual meeting. So come to the section meeting equipped with ideas and ready to meet and collaborate with fellow members. Manuscripts Section Steering Committee members will facilitate the group and have tips for putting together an effective proposal. Announcements and tips will also be posted on the section listserv for those who are unable to make it to San Diego.

If you can't make it to the annual meeting this year and would like to participate, please post a comment with your contact information and area of interest. Discover tips on how to make your proposal stand out here.

2013 (August 11-17): Archives, New Orleans, Louisiana
