SAMLA 87 SESSION INFORMATION FORM

SAMLA sessions run 90-minutes long. Traditional panels require 3-4 participants; roundtable discussions may have up to 5-7 participants. A member may only serve in one panel for any given year. Members may seek SAMLA approval to serve in additional panels by contacting our office at email@example.com. The Program Committee may approve the request to serve in additional panels as long as the nature of service in each panel differs significantly. This may include, but is not limited to: serving as both Chair and Panelist in one’s own panel; serving as Chair in one session and Panelist in another session; serving as Panelist both in a traditional panel and on a roundtable discussion. A member’s service as Secretary on any given panel does not count toward the one-panel limit.
