ASLTA collaborates with a local state ASLTA chapter to host the national professional development conference. Chapters bid to host a national conference during the General Business meeting, and members vote to determine the winning bid. Benefits of this partnership include:
- Profit sharing between ASLTA national and the ASLTA chapter (75% / 25%)
- Energizes the local chapter, increasing membership and participation
- Allows the national conference to be held in various parts of the country
- Brings 500+ ASL educators to the site, boosting visibility and recognition of ASL
How Does the Conference Hosting Process Work?
- 4+ years before the conference date, the local ASLTA chapter decides to submit a bid to host the national conference.
- Leaders of the local ASLTA chapter present a formal bid at the ASLTA conference 4 years before the desired conference event.
- If there are several bids, members vote on who should host the national conference.
- The local chapter and ASLTA develop a memo of understanding and a preparation timeline outlining what needs to be done and when to ensure a successful conference.
- The local chapter actively begins planning the conference at least 2 years before the conference event.
- The local chapter confirms conference dates.
- The local chapter finalizes the conference location, hotel discounts, etc.
- One year before the conference, registration begins.
- Finally, the conference opens!
