In order to prioritize RDAP’s commitment to foster sustainable diversity and inclusion (Strategic Plan 2023-2026 Goal 2) and add to RDAP membership value (Goal 4), we are looking for one or two volunteers from RDAP membership to contribute to a 1-year (Sept. 2023-24) Task Force exploring options to integrate hybrid elements into the annual RDAP Summit beginning in 2025.
Membership on the Task Force will entail attending regular (suggested monthly) meetings, building on materials gathered via survey and generated at the June 16, 2023 RDAP Hybrid Summit Town Hall, and reviewing emerging research and recommendations on best practices for conferences, toward the goals of 1) making recommendations to RDAP Leadership and 2) generating and documenting next steps for the organization to implement its decided course of action. You can find the full Task Force charge here.
RDAP members in good standing are eligible to serve on the Task Force; to volunteer, please send a short email indicating your interest and mentioning any relevant experience to email@example.com by EoB this Friday, Sept. 1, 2023. If there are more volunteers than the Task Force can accommodate, RDAP Leadership will reach out to volunteers to coordinate a selection process.
