Ensure that while assigning reviews potential conflicts of interests are taken into consideration such as assigning to someone from the same organization, or a committee member could have submitted a proposal. Ask team to help you by coming forward and declaring any potential conflicts
Setup up Office Hours during review time. Be available on chat or email to be able to answer questions that the team may have.
Follow-up with team members to ensure that reviews get done on time
Before the co-chairs deliberate on their final decision, setup a meeting with the team so they have a forum to discuss their reviews, borderline proposals and ask questions
Set an early deadline for all the initial reviews to be completed and entered onto the AnitaB.org submission/review site, perhaps 2 weeks after submissions close. Then, as co-chairs, you need to determine which proposals were highly enough rated to be accepted for Grace Hopper.
Clearly mark the proposal acceptances and rejections on the AnitaB.org submission site before the review deadline.
Technical Reviews are coded as being “Beginner Level”,” Intermediate Level” or “Advanced Level”. Consequently do take this into consideration at the time of making your final recommendations
