2016 Annual Conference, Orlando, FL

Are you excited for Orlando? The Local Information Committee is too! We have worked hard all year to build a great interactive map for those visiting Orlando.  Please check out our map by visiting this link:  The map has ideas for hotels, food and other fun things to do during the Annual Conference.  If you have not already booked your hotel, please check the ALA Annual Site for a complete list ( 

In addition to our great maps, the Annual Conference Local Information Committee has arranged a field trip. This is our first year putting on a field trip, and we believe that you will enjoy going as much as we enjoyed putting it together. This year we will be visiting the uniquely amazing Ripley's Believe It or Not!

This top Orlando attraction is filled with rare and uncommon artifacts from around the globe. The field trip will take place on Friday June 27 at 7:00 pm. Tickets will be available at the door for $14.99. Ripley’s is located at 8201 International Drive. Be sure to RSVP by filling out this Google Form: We hope to see you there!
