Participants: We are requesting that each consortium send at least one person to Sacramento on December 1-2 to participate in the 2015 AEBG Reader's Conference. Those consortia that have co-chairs may send more than one person from their consortium. If the primary lead or chair cannot attend, please send someone else from the consortium who has participated in the AB86 process and now the AEBG.

Program: The conference is an important step of the process of reviewing all submitted AEBG plans. There will be plenary sessions and small group discussions. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with fellow leads or chairs and receive technical assistance from the AEBG Office. You can view the Agenda here.

Preparation: The center piece of the conference will be a small group discussion of the AEBG consortia plans. Each small group will be comprised of representatives from neighboring consortia according to this list. During this discussion you will share observations and compare notes on the AEBG plans submitted by the consortia in your group. At the end of the conference, each small group will share their insights with the larger group. Download the small group roster list here.

1. You should review the AEBG plans submitted by the consortia in your small group (the link to all AEBG consortia plans will be emailed to you separately).
2. To ensure a productive exchange of ideas, please fill out this Reviewer Questionnaire by Tuesday evening, December 1, and bring it with you on Wednesday, December 2. You can view or download the Reviewer Questionnaire here.
