Advisory Committee Peer Reviewers

We are forming a diverse cross-section of PMBA volunteers to serve as peer reviewers, anonymously rating conference session proposals. This is a great opportunity for you to let us know which sessions you would find most helpful or intriguing for the 2017 Annual Conference.

This time commitment is expected to be approximately 1 - 5 hours depending on the number of submissions received. Reviewers may rate as many, or as few sessions, as they are able to.

The peer review process will begin Wednesday, January 25 through Wednesday, February 1 and may be completed online at any time. If you are interested in serving as a peer reviewer please sign up below.
