Information Technology Initiative Goal – SMG Sponsored NIS initiative to increase AIAA accessibility and improve participation by leveraging info technology Premise – Maintaining role as worlds pre-eminent aerospace society implies that we need to evolve and adapt as new communications tools are available Background – mini-survey conducted in October 2010 Ironically, technical committee meetings are often the least technical meetings you can find! Limited access to telecon, internet, shared services, etc. 5
Technology Initiative 1) set aside $5K for Space 2011 (approximately a 0.9% portion of total budget) Solicit candidate ideas for integrating technology into tech program – example – SLTC concept for webcasting sessions to students in Europe Since Space is a SMG conference, this seems to be an SMG decision 2) Provide each TC chair with Telecon and Webex account Used for TC business, including regular meetings and other working activities Basic cost for individual Webex account is $50/month, with no negotiated rates (Assume that an AIAA group package would be 1/5 of this) 3) Provide each TC with an auto-distribution list for TC members 4) Negotiate conferences based on availability of IT – telecom lines and equipment, projectors, etc. 5) Identify common TC business activities – membership lists, awards nomination process, etc. – and develop work process tools to make easier 6
