We would like to thank the Deloitte Foundation, EY, LLP, KPMG, PwC, StudentsExcel, and Wiley for supporting the Spark: Meeting of the Regions!
On May 24-26, 2021, the AAA Regions will come together for a spring Spark meeting - a digital experience that builds upon all we have learned since our first virtual meeting. Presentations will be “live” during the synchronous sessions, and paper presenters will get feedback through discussant presentations and audience engagement. Based on feedback from last year’s Spark and Annual Meetings we have decided to no longer ask presenters to prepare and submit presentation materials for display in a Presentation Gallery. We have also extended the submission date to Wednesday, February 17th.
Attendees will join now-familiar-Zoom-sessions, having the opportunity to learn from presenters, and “chat” with colleagues. This structure preserves the key elements of traditional AAA meetings, while augmenting with more opportunities to engage with colleagues, in the following ways:
As you can see below, there are numerous benefits for both participants and presenters:
This Spark meeting won't be exactly the same as meetings we've hosted before, and we're excited about that. With each meeting that’s been held, we’ve used member feedback to modify the meeting platform, structure, focus, and program. This has become an opportunity to leverage the power of digital gatherings and improve on the traditional conference model. Together, we are learning, improving and exploring new opportunities!
