So, today was my first day at the helm of organising AoMO 2016 and as you can imagine there is lots to be getting to grips with; not least budgets, program, catering, mailing, resources and most of all making this conference as AoMOy as we have all come to expect!
To make that happen requires lots of hard work (and late nights) to ensure I have a complete understanding of your individual requirements. Ian and the IEDC team have been doing a sterling job, but now I need to get up to speed as quickly as possible!
I think the best way I can ensure this happens is if we do the following:
1. Please copy firstname.lastname@example.org into any correspondence about the conference.
2. If you have sent an email to either Ian Sutherland or the email@example.com and are awaiting a response could you please resend to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
In return, I promise to respond to every email within 1 week.
I will be in Slovenia from the 16th-19th June when Ian and I will be going over the program, resource requirements and scheduling in fine grained detail.
Could I also encourage everyone who has yet to register to do so asap and for those of you who have yet to pay the invoice from the IEDC to look to make those arrangements as a matter of urgency. Accommodation in the close vicinity is also sparse in the summer as Bled is a tourist destination. The IEDC are currently holding a number of discounted rooms at local hotels for AoMO delegate use but there is only so long these offers will be available for!
Let’s get booking guys…. we have just 3 months to go!
Really looking forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new AoMOers in September.
Best wishes and keep in touch
Apologies to those of you who are unable to join us at the 8th Art of Management & Organization conference on the 1st-4th September 2016 in Lake Bled, Slovenia, we are in the process of compiling a conference delegate mailing list but for now this is the best way for me to contact you all.
