ALA POLICY 7.4.10 Conference Planning Calendar

The American Library Association will establish and maintain a ten–year advance planning calendar of religious observances considered to be most obligatory to practitioners of major groups and will circulate the document annually to all units and affiliates as well as to other agencies that indicate an interest in its receipt. ALA shall advise all units that the scheduling of events of interest to libraries and their staffs should avoid these dates and allow for travel time free of conflict with them.
