Anyone can apply to be a member of the international outreach and advisory board. Advisory board members are recognized on the website and are asked to:
- Promote both participation and attendance at the conference
- Help us find additional partner organizations in their region(s)
- Help support and potentially train presenters in their geographical region and local languages
- If possible, help moderate sessions during the actual conference
As a conference that is focused on being "inclusive," our desire is to have international attendees see this as a truly world-wide and not a North-America-centric event, and to see themselves as full participants and presenters, not just the audience.
To sign up for the advisory board, please make sure you have joined the Library 2.0 online network, and then, first, join the outreach and advisory board group here.
Second, after (and only after!) you have joined this group, please go HERE to give us the details for your listing on the advisor page. In order for your name to be listed on the Advisory Board page, you must fill out the form at that link. The page is updated every week or two, so there may be a short delay in your name appearing.
