National Conference & Exhibition
The AASL National Conference & Exhibition is the only national conference devoted solely to the needs of school librarians. The conference is held every two years and coordinated by a member-committee composed of association leaders from across the nation. While it is the primary continuing education activity of the division and a leading professional development event for school librarians, the AASL national conference is also an excellent educational and business forum for the entire library community.
The next national conference will be held in Louisville, KY, November 14-16, 2019.
- AASL has opened the proposal process for concurrent sessions. The deadline to submit is Monday, December 3, 2018, at noon CT. Final decisions on all proposals will be announced on or before March 1, 2019.
