Fall is my favorite time of year. For me, it’s the beauty the season brings, with bright colors and the crisp air on a morning run. Fall means college football Saturdays and trips to the apple orchard for cider, cinnamon donuts, and colorful gourds for my front porch. The change in season gives me permission to get a Starbuck’s pumpkin spice latte every chance I get and pick up that first new fall sweater I’ve been eyeing at my favorite store. And I certainly cannot forget to mention all the time spent in my yard with family getting those last projects finished before winter sets in.
Volunteers scan attendees as they enter so IACAC can email an evaluation for the session after Conference

The Evaluations Committee has recruited 36 volunteers for the annual conference, Imagine Possibilities. The Committee achieved its goal of recruiting 35 members to assist with scanning participants for each conference session. Volunteers get to choose their preferred conference sessions, which will enable them to simultaneously participate in their preferred professional development sessions as well as volunteer at the conference. In addition, the Committee recommended that IACAC invest in volunteer buttons for conference volunteers to wear on their badges in order to encourage new members and interested participants to assist in various ways throughout the 2015 conference and in the future.
The Committee has also been part of an extensive research process in determining a new technology vendor to use at the 2015 conference. American Tradeshow Services (ATS) was chosen as the company to best meet the conference needs. ATS will be providing 14 scanners to facilitate the Committee’s work. The Committee is currently finalizing details on the information to be provided on both the name badges for Conference participants and the spreadsheets for the committees. In the next few weeks we will finalize assignments for Committee volunteers as we work with ATS to provide the final details leading up to the start of the conference on April 29th.
