FAQ about General Sessions
How were the education sessions selected for the 2013 Annual Meeting & Exposition?
Attendee feedback from the 2011 Annual Meeting & Exposition indicated a preference for fewer education sessions and greater variety of speakers. ASAE listened, and reduced the number of sessions to 120 and instituted a rule allowing speakers to present only once at the conference. When the call for session proposals went out in fall 2012, over 375 proposals were received. This response, coupled with the decrease in the number of session slots, made for an extremely difficult selection process, but we feel the result is a much stronger offering of educational content.
