CHICAGO – The Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) invites its committees, sections, interest groups and individual members to consider submitting program proposals for the 2018 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans.
For the first time, program proposals will be submitted via a centralized submission site for all ALA Divisions, RoundTables, Committees, and Offices. ACRL members must choose “ACRL” on the first screen of the submission form in order to have the program included in the ACRL pool of programs to be reviewed.
There will be a virtual meeting at 11:00 a.m. CST on June 1, 2017, for ACRL units and members interested in submitting proposals for a 2018 ALA Annual Conference program. The purpose of this meeting is to provide potential conference program planners with an understanding of the Annual Conference program planning process, including budgets, timelines and planning tips.
RSVP online to attend the June 1 virtual meeting. Once login instructions are available, attendees will be notified. Login instructions will also be posted on the main ACRL page in ALA Connect.
2018 ALA Annual Conference program proposals are due August 25, 2017. The ACRL Professional Development Committee will review proposal and select 2018 Annual Conference programs, with notifications issued in October 2017.
More details about the Annual Conference program process are on the ACRL website. Contact ACRL Program Officer Megan Griffin at email@example.com or ACRL Manager of Professional Development Margot Conahan at firstname.lastname@example.org questions concerning the program proposal process.
