I'm having a much more difficult time finding a deputy vice-chair for the conference track I'm in charge of than I thought. For one, I don't know that many people, and of those, they're search and AI people - not the best fits for the track. The first invite I sent was several days ago - no reply. I sent one to a second person and heard back within a day - decline (but with a good excuse). I sent a third ... I guess I just sent it yesterday morning, so that's not that long ago. But, no word. Hopefully I'll hear something by tomorrow. I'm supposed to name by deputy early next week.
