What are Workshops?

Usually, workshops are hosted at the Annual Meeting, but not this year. Since we cancelled the Annual Meeting, we are setting aside a special set of dates and times for holding these workshops. This year, workshops will be hosted following Raising Our Voices, during the weeks of November 30th and December 7th. Only proposals submitted via the Workshop Application Google Form will be reviewed promptly, and if your workshop is selected, you will be notified by October 26thThe deadline to complete this form is Monday, October 19, 2020 at 11:59 PM ET

Workshops are offered in 2- or 4-hour time slots, but presenters can opt to use less than the full time allotted. Due to all workshops being conducted virtually, the acceptable length of workshops has been adjusted this year to accommodate an accessible virtual environment. Workshops can have up to 6 total participants maximum. Workshops can be submitted in up to 3 pre-determined tracks:

  1. Career & Professional Development
  2. Technical Skill Development
  3. Policy Outreach, Engagement, Advocacy

Registration Fees

Workshop organizers can choose to present their workshops for free or charge a registration fee. Registration fees will then be paid out either to a AAA section/split between two AAA sections, or to the workshop organizer.

If registration fees are selected:

  1. Fees will be as follow:
    1. Quarter day/2-hour time slot
      • $10/$20 (student/professional)
    2. Half day/4-hour time slot
      • $20/$40 (student/professional) for a half day (4-hours).
  2. After final expenses, workshop organizers or affiliated sections will receive 90% revenue, and AAA will receive 10%.
    1. If the workshop is affiliated with a section, the section will receive the 90% revenue. Sections are responsible for paying out any honoraria to presenters.
      • If you wish to partner with another section, and if you indicate the workshop registration revenues should be paid to the affiliated section(s) you identify, the revenue will be divided evenly among both sections.
    2. If the workshop is not sponsored by a section, the organizer will receive 90% revenue, minus expenses.
