Required Proposal Information

The Program Committee for the SVP 71st Annual Meeting, November 2-5, 2011, at the Paris Las Vegas and hosted by the Vertebrate Paleontology group within the Department of Geosciences of the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, is putting out a call for workshop and field trip proposals, including pre and post-meeting events.

The proposal is not to exceed two pages and should include:

Page 1
A concise description of the workshop or field trip including:

-- Purpose and intended outcome.
-- Date, time (beginning and ending).
-- Venue (if space is being requested for the event, please indicate this and the requirements).
-- Transportation: (if applicable) on own or provided? If provided: where is/are the exact pick up/drop off point(s). NOTE: rented transportation must secure insurance through the rental company at an amount, and level of coverage, approved by the business office.
Transportation provided by a leader, or other participant, must provide proof of insurance, and have it approved by the business office, at least 120 days prior to the date of the trip.
-- Name(s) of organizer(s)/leader(s) and all of their contact information

-- Cost per person (please factor in the cost of the leaders if they are not to be charged).
-- Minimum and maximum number of attendees.
NOTE: let us know if the maximum and minimum number of attendees is to include the leaders or not, as we must adjust the online registration system accordingly.
-- Regarding Costs:  A check will be sent to the field trip leader shortly after the field trip registration deadline to use to cover expenses.
