Thank You: Issue #6 of the Registrants Newsletter

Thank you all for making the AAUP 2011 Annual Meeting such a resounding success! More than 730 scholarly communications and publishing professionals gathered in Baltimore for the events, workshops, and sessions of the 2011 AAUP Annual Meeting. The work of the Program Committee, speakers, and panelists, as well as the enthusiastic participation of so many, made this a remarkably rewarding meeting. In this final issue of the AAUP 2011 Registrants Newsletter, we'll cover a few of the highlights, and point you in the direction of continuing conversations and communities of interest.

AAUP 2011 Conference Knowledge

The knowledge gleaned and shared at the AAUP Annual Meeting is the meat of our conference, and has a life well beyond our 3-day gathering. There are a number of ways we seek to capture the annual Conference knowledge, and keep sharing it throughout the year.


Session Recordings

Many of the AAUP 2011 sessions were recorded, and the full set is available for a low cost of $55 (shipping included, plus $10 international shipping.) The recordings will be sent on a PC- and Mac-compatible CD-ROM and the files can be transferred to your own device. Order your set today. 


AAUPWiki and Presentation Sharing

The AAUP 2011 Conference Wiki has been set up, where panelists, presenters, and attendees can share session files and notes.


Session speakers can share slide presentations hosted on their own site, or can send files to AAUP for hosting via our Slideshare account. A growing library of AAUP 2011 presentations can be found here:  http://www.slideshare.net/aaupny/tag/aaup11.


#AAUP11: The Twitter Conversation

Many attendees were actively twittering from sessions and networking roundtables (and serendipitous hallway meetings and even a few bars!) The #aaup11 feed became entangled with #thatcamp as attendees at both conferences (well, one conference--ours--and one unconference--The Humanities and Technology Camp) followed, retweeted, and compared notes with each other. THATCamper Mark Sample (@samplereality) generously lent a hand and archived the #aaup11 Twitter stream.

New AAUP President Steps into Office 

The 2011-2012 AAUP Board of Directors stepped into its new term in Baltimore. LSU Press Director MaryKatherine Callaway took office as the Association's president, delivering a luncheon inaugural address on Saturday, June 4, which picked up the meeting's overall theme of "collaboration." In addition to stressing collaboration with parent institutions, and announcing a new University Relations Task Force, Callaway also recognized that the members of AAUP "figure things out with each other, which is one reason AAUP is so important: our collegiality and willingness to shape our future together." Past President Richard Brown (Director, Georgetown University Press) delivered his valedictory address at a lunch banquet on Friday, June 3.


New officers and directors joined the board, as well. Peter Dougherty (Director, Princeton University Press) is President Elect. Tim Doyle (CFO, Harvard University Press) took office as Treasurer Elect. Ellen Faran (Director,  MIT Press) and Charles Watkinson (Director, Purdue University Press) joined as directors-at-large. Kathleen Keane (Director, Johns Hopkins University Press) and Steve Maikowski (Director, NYU Press) completed their terms and stepped down from the board. We thank them for their service.  

Don Collins Receives AAUP Constituency Award 

Don Collins, president of Chicago Distribution Services at the University of Chicago Press, was honored at Thursday night's opening banquet with the 2011 AAUP Constituency Award. The award is presented annually to a staff member who "has demonstrated active leadership and service to the association and the university press community."  


In nominating Don, AAUP members cited his improvement on best business practices, his encouragement of inter-press cooperation, his understanding and leadership in digital publishing, and his generosity as a mentor both for colleagues and for smaller presses. During his university press career, Don has devoted three years to three different AAUP committees, and spent two years on the Board of Directors as Treasurer-Elect and Treasurer; he also has a long history of leading Annual Meeting panels and workshops. Congratulations, Don!
