CALL FOR PANEL PROPOSALS: 2015 NATIONAL CONVENTION (MME DIVISION)
The Media Management and Economics Division welcomes panel proposals for the 2015 AEJMC convention in San Francisco, CA.
Panel proposals can be on any topic relevant to media management and economics (with an emphasis on media topics). Proposals can also be for mini-plenary and off-site sessions, or for pre-convention workshops. All MME members are encouraged to submit proposals in any area of expertise and interest.
The deadline for submitting all proposals is Friday, September 26. Proposals will be reviewed and ranked by the division’s executive board. Please follow these guidelines when submitting a proposal:
- Identify your convention panel as addressing one of three areas: research, professional freedom and responsibility, or teaching.
- Panels and other sessions can be co-sponsored with other divisions. Co-sponsorship increases MME’s ability to schedule sessions during the best available times, which broadens the appeal of the sessions. So be sure to identify divisions or interest groups that might be interested in co-sponsoring your proposals.
- Panels can include members who work at media companies, universities, and other organizations near the San Francisco area. Potential panelists who work in the area should be identified in the proposal.
- The convention will be at the Marriott San Francisco Marquis, August 5-9, 2015.

We strongly urge you to embrace the diversity of AEJMC’s growing membership and of other organizations where you may find panelists. Remember to include the diversity information in the space provided.
The MME Executive Board will review panel proposals and rank them. A final slate of the division’s proposals will be submitted to AEJMC in mid-October. You will be notified of the results.
