SCUP's Planning Academies
Role in SCUP
SCUP has four planning academies with a cadre of about 100 volunteers who serve as valuable content experts who review and evaluate concurrent session proposal submissions to SCUP's annual, international conference.
Most academy members also choose to contribute more broadly to SCUP's body of planning knowledge throughout the year, including participating in an annual survey of trends which informs an executive brief presented yearly to the SCUP Board of Directors and the SCUP Council.
Each planning academy is led by a convener and associate convener who serve two-year terms. General academy membership is maintained through active participation in the review process each October. SCUP is grateful to the many volunteers who generously lend their perspective, expertise, and time each year.
