Advisory Panel Meetings and Coronavirus Impact on Travel

In response to the COVID-19 impact on travel and out of an abundance of caution, the Tennessee Arts Commission will be conducting its annual panel review meetings completely via teleconference this year. Panel dates and the process by which applications are reviewed and scored will not change, but applicants and panelists should not travel to the Commission’s office for these meetings. Instead, you should use a teleconference line, where you will be connected to Commission staff and panelists. The phone number is 888-778-2006.

In order to ensure these meetings are successful, we are asking you to please do the following.

APPLICANTS:

  • Dial in to the teleconference line at the beginning of the hour your organization is to be reviewed. See link to panel schedules below.
  • Immediately place your phone on MUTE. Commission staff will ask you to unmute and identify yourself during an appropriate break between reviews.
  • Reply to this email with a confirmation that you have received and understand this new process. Please also include your work and/or cell phone numbers to help us reach you if need be.

PANELISTS:

  • Complete initial scoring of applications by midnight of the night before the panel meeting. See link to schedule of reviews below.
  • Ensure you have access to a computer with internet connection and telephone during the scheduled panel meeting time.
  • Dial in to the teleconference line 30 minutes before the first application being reviewed. The phone number is 888-778-2006.

The program director assigned to your application/panel will be sending your these instructions via email. If you have any questions or concerns, please call or email your program officer.

Thank you for your patience and support as we work through the logistics of this temporary process.

You will find a detailed schedule of all FY2021 Advisory Panel meetings, held in March and April 2020 here, or scroll down for a day to day listing.
