The proposal form is particularly useful during the planning stages for more complex new programs where the concept needs to be developed, particularly if there are co-convenors or even a team of convenors. The proposal form can help to make ideas more concrete and highlight potential hurdles and ways to over come them, leading to increased chances of success. The document also provides useful documentation for the program committee and details which can be used in the Program Guide and on the Calendar.
You'll notice that the section with the 100 word course description for the Program Guide comes towards the end - basically because this often becomes clearer when working through the document. If you decide not to complete the form as a whole, you will need to provide a short program description for the Program Guide to Programs Coordinator Terry Case.
