Select ALA Midwinter Meeting and Annual Conference Schedule for Chapters

The ALA Midwinter and Annual Conference: How Chapters Participate

The Chapter Relations Office not only helps raise awareness of and sensitivity to Chapter needs throughout ALA but in doing so also helps maintain and improve the ALA and Chapters partnership. In addition to CRO, the interests of Chapters are represented within ALA by the Chapter Relations Committee (CRC), which meets each Midwinter Meeting and Annual Conference, and serves as an advisory committee to the CRO. The Chapter Relations Committee was founded on January 11, 1967. The Chapter Relations Office was founded on June 28, 1979.
