The program for the Annual Conference is created from these proposals.

Committee Purpose:  The Agenda Planning Committee (APC) collects policy proposals, reports and other business for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) that are conducted each year during the business part of the ATI Annual Conference.  APC works with the people and committees that are submitting policy proposals to make sure they are well crafted.  They assemble the Facilitation and Agenda Coordinating Team, and plan the meeting agendas, as well as coordinate any last minute changes to the agendas.  Together APC and Formal Consensus Process Committee steer the proposals through the online Formal Consensus in the months before an ATI Annual Conference to ensure the proposal is streamlined and ready for the AGM.
