Call for Proposals: MI/AIR 2019!

The 2019 MI/AIR Steering Committee has been hard at work preparing our 33rd Annual Conference.  The 2019 Conference will be held November 6-8, 2019 at Treetops Resort in Gaylord, Michigan. At this time, we are announcing the launch of our Call for Presentations campaign.  We hope you will consider presenting at this year’s conference...


Last year, we had a schedule filled with high quality presentations and we would love to see the same for 2019!  We welcome submissions on a variety of topics (including but not limited to): results of research in IR, planning or assessment; data collection/analysis tools and methods; dashboards and visualization tools; IR’s role in strategic planning; effective practices in data governance or quality assurance.  This year’s presentation proposal deadline is Friday, June 28.  Those who submit a proposal will hear back from the committee by the end of July.  We are also pleased to announce that the best presentation winner from this year's conference will be eligible for a $500 Travel Grant to attend and present at the 2020 AIR Forum.  


Present at MI/AIR:  

We have an online proposal submission process.  Please follow this link to submit your presentation proposal.

Our 2019 conference will begin Wednesday afternoon, November 6, with a pre-conference workshop.  Thursday will be a full day of breakout sessions followed by a half-day of sessions on Friday. The chosen theme for our conference this year is Blazing Trails to Data Informed Decision Making.  Specific details concerning the conference schedule and conference registration will be emailed to MI/AIR members in early September.  Feel free to visit the 2019 conference website at any time for related details.  


Lastly, the MI/AIR member email list has grown to be quite extensive.  However, we want to make sure we are reaching all who may be interested in this announcement.  Please feel free to forward this email to your institution's IR colleagues, such as any new hires.  If you have any questions at all, please reply to this email.
