Welcome: Issue #5 of the AAUP 2010 Registrants Newsletter||
| And we're here! AAUP has begun gathering in Salt Lake City, ready to kick off tomorrow with pre-meeting workshops, the AAUP Business Meeting (for members), and the opening receptions and banquets. This issue will include some final updates and essential information to make the most of your attendance at AAUP 2010. Throughout the meeting, you may want to refer to previous issues for more information on featured speakers, special events, and a wealth of ideas about how to enjoy our host city. |
First Things First: Getting Registered||
|General meeting registration will be located in the Grand Ballroom Foyer and will open Thursday, June 17, at 11:00 AM. |
Registration Desk Hours:
Thursday, June 17, 11 AM to 6 PM
Friday, June 18, 8 AM to 5 PM
Saturday, June 19, 8 AM to 4 PM
Pre-registered workshop attendees can register on Thursday, June 17, from 7:30 to 9:00 AM, in the Grand Ballroom Foyer. Both the E-Book and New Marketing Strategies Workshops are full; no on-site registration will be available.
Essential Meeting Information||
|Attendees will receive a registration packet with a printed program and all the usual materials for the meeting, but we've also posted most of this information--plus some online-only meeting resources--in a handy Online Meeting Information kit.|
In addition to links to an online and printable program, you'll also find last minute program updates, a floor plan of the Marriott meeting rooms, a list of AAUP 2010 attendees (as of 6/10), maps of downtown, and much more that you'll find useful throughout the meeting.
Program Changes and Corrections||
| This document lists known corrections and changes to the on-site printed program. While we'll update this errata sheet regularly, here's a few corrections you'll want to know about:|
* The Friday evening reception hosted by the New York Review of Books starts at 7 PM. The printed program is incorrect. Shuttles will begin leaving the Marriott for the Utah Museum of Fine Arts at 6:45.
* 2010 Book, Jacket, and Journal Show jacket and cover judge Audrey Meyer will be unable to attend the meeting. The Friday design session scheduled for 10:45 that she was to speak at will go on, however.
* The organized Dine Around Town on Friday evening has been cancelled. We can offer a number of restaurant recommendations for your own dinners with colleagues out on the town.
* Group 1 Press Directors will gather for breakfast on Saturday in the Cottonwood Room, rather than the Grand Ballroom. However, please stop by the buffet in the Grand Ballroom first to pick up breakfast.

Will you be tweeting the meeting? #AAUP10
Here's a handy link to follow your fellow attendees--please share with colleagues who cannot join us in Salt Lake.
The AAUP 2010 Meeting Wiki is online and ready for your presentation notes and comments.
Breakfast Interest Groups|
|Who isn't interested in breakfast, the most important meal of the day? The Friday and Saturday breakfasts can provide more than physical fuel for your day. If you want, you can get intellectual fuel through sharing shop talk with colleagues in the same interest groups. The topics for each day have been finalized and are listed below. (Don't worry, there will be plenty of open tables if intellectual relaxation at such an hour is more your bag!)|
Friday, June 18
