It’s clear from such platforms as American Idol, all-star ballots and Reddit that people love to vote. The desire to decide fates is a godlike ability that is too powerful to resist.
Consider Reddit, “The Front Page of the Internet.” It’s a message board where users submit links, which are voted on by clicking either an up or down arrow next to the story. Those posts that receive the most up votes rise to the top, where they’re viewed by more people. It’s a community’s way of declaring what’s important.
MPI has decided to do something similar this year with Meeting Madness, our annual contest of chapter-submitted sessions for the World Education Congress (WEC). You receive five votes each week. You can use all of those votes on one session, or you can spread them among other sessions. Every Sunday, you get another five votes. By May 8, the two sessions receiving the most thumb-up votes will be declared, and subsequently and presented at WEC 2013 in Las Vegas.
Ready to exert your power? Then head over to our Meeting Madness page and let the votes begin.
