The conference officer develops and tracks conference initiatives.

The conference officer position addresses a weakness in the current ACL administration, where each one-off Vice-President (VP) hires a one-off General Chair (GC) and a one-off Program Chair (PC), with no continuity between conferences. The conference officer:

  • Develops conference-related and program-related initiatives.
  • Tracks initiatives and work with conference organizers to ensure that successful initiatives are continued.
  • Maintains updated and accessible conference guidelines.
  • Reports to the ACL Executive Committee on conference developments.
