Dear MSMGF Members,
Please find below a communication from Nicci Stein, Executive Director of the Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD) and a member of the Community Programs Committee for AIDS 2012. She is currently collecting suggestions for plenary speakers for the conference, and it is very important that MSM advocates weigh in.
Please see Ms. Stein’s original letter below for more details. Any suggestions for speakers should be made using the Excel form linked below and emailed to her directly at this address.
The deadline for submissions is SEPTEMBER 14! So please submit any suggestions as soon as possible.
Thank you very much,
The MSMGF Secretariat
Please forgive me for cross-postings as this will also go out to ICAD members as well. As most of you know, I am a member of the Community Programs Committee for AIDS 2012 in Washington DC and it is time for all committee members to collect suggestions for plenary speakers for the conference. Attached are two documents – a suggestions form (Excel) and list of previous plenary topics and speakers (pdf) for your information.
Please use the attached form to send me your suggestions for plenary speakers. Please note that all suggestions must be channeled through a committee member, they cannot be sent directly to the IAS.
Suggestions are sent to the Conference Coordinating Committee (CCC), who will then make the final decisions. The CCC is charged with developing five Plenary Sessions – three plenary presentations per conference day, with 15 presentations in total. Each individual presentation will be 20-25 minutes in duration, and topics should engage all of the various stakeholders and media.
Please note the deadline for submissions to me is WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 14TH.
Thanks in advance for your input,
