Opportunities for Authors and Readers to Participate
Author Spotlights used to be called Author Reading-Chats. We spotlight 4 authors every hour during the day, except when there is a general session going on (e.g. Keynote or special speakers). We invite authors to sign up as soon as possible as you will be accepted on a First Come, First Served basis. Authors who fall below the cutoff, will be retained on a wait-list, as we do experience some attrition prior to the conference.
We also need moderators for these sessions. If you are interested, please see "Moderators:" below.
We now have enough authors who have signed up for Author Spotlights. You are welcome to continue signing up to be placed on the waiting list, if you would like to be considered in case of attrition. Thank you to all who signed up.

We need experienced moderators to facilitate both Author Spotlights and Panel Sessions. We will be offering training this year, so if you don't have experience, but you think you have the right 'stuff' to run one of these, by all means apply. Please note that ALL moderators will be required to attend training this year.

Thank you to everyone who signed up to be a panelist this year. All our panels have more than enough applicants, plus we have a waiting list. We will be announcing the panelists in early April. Please look at the Conference Schedule under 2016 Conf - General Information, under Events / Annual Conference.
We are always looking for volunteers. Our needs range from simple to complex: Help at registration desk, fill registration bags, be a timer, be a runner, sit at the information desk, help the conference manager, move boxes, pack boxes, and more.
