as facilitators or recorders at each table.

We need a total of 9 facilitators and 9 recorders.  Please email me at by Monday, June 3, 2002 with your desired role
(facilitator, recorder, or either) and your preferred topic areas.  I will
match people up with topics on a first-come, first-served basis, so please
list at least two alternatives to your first topical choice choice.

discussion focused and moving.  Facilitators may also incorporate their own
questions as well. Experience has shown that very few tables make it through
all the questions in the time provided!

RECORDERS participate in the discussion and take notes of the discussion
which will be forwarded to the co-chairs. The co-chairs will use the notes
to write a report which will be posted/published on the ALCTS Web site.
Facilitators and recorders will receive acknowledgement in the report of the

Thank you in advance, and we look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!
