Re: [Harp-L] SPAH presenters

Right, no signatures are asked for. Greg had said that he would be shocked if anyone *would* decline to sign a release. Strictly hypothetical.

SPAH doesn't and shouldn't center its policy around one person's privacy concerns. And the point of having a release is to make various intentions and expectations explicit, and in that sense, it could be a good thing. If SPAH were to decide to ask people to sign a release before performing or presenting, I would decline (with a heavy heart, I assure you). There would surely be other performers and presenters who would be fine with it. I would still love SPAH, and still participate as an attendee. But the suggestion that "no-one would object" was a bit of erroneous thinking that I felt the need to correct.

Most of the SPAH seminar presenters volunteer to do a seminar. There are no signatures asked for in the seminar process which is very accommodating and flexible because of the nature of volunteerism.
