In an effort to welcome first-time attendees and students to AIHce, we are bringing back the highly successful PAL (Personal AIHce Liaison) Program. This program allows new professional AIHce attendees and students (“First Timers”) to be matched with seasoned AIHce attendees (“PALs”). The goal is to help the First Timer network with fellow professionals and provide a better overall conference experience for all.
“The PAL Program is an excellent opportunity for first time attendees to have their own personal AIHce tour guide and to become oriented with the ins and outs of the conference.” –Freeman Krieger, Volt Contract Services, Decatur, AL
PAL engagements include:
- Connect with each other at least once before AIHce via e-mail or phone.
- Meet with one another at least once at the conference (coffee, a drink, or attend the First Time Orientation Session with them on Monday morning; whatever you prefer).
- Help the First Timer navigate the conference by suggesting sessions and events to attend, as well as helping them network by introducing him or her to some of your colleagues.
First Timers will be matched with a PAL based on academic and/or professional area of employment (as selected during registration) and work location.
Register as a PAL
Sign up to participate in the PAL Program when you register for the conference. Beginning in early May, AIHce staff will be emailing you about your match.
