If you are interested in presenting a program or being a speaker at the ALA Annual Conference, please be aware that there is no one place to submit a conference presentation proposal. You need to investigate which ALA division, office or roundtable fits closest with your presentation's subject matter. Then you would contact that division or office for details on contributing to their program at the conference.
Within ALA, various departments focus on various aspects of librarianship.
A list of the ALA divisions,
is available on the ALA website.
Open Space Meetings
Do you find that the most useful and energizing session you attend is the ad
hoc meeting in the hallway or on break? Do you yearn for a chance to
expand on those conversations with colleagues who share your passion for
ideas and concepts not necessarily on the formal program? If so, ALA offers
"Taking Chances: Our Future or Our Demise", a unique Open Space Technology
conference within the conference. Come prepared to be surprised as
participants organize the agenda, convene the discussion groups, and come
away amazed at how intellectually rich and energizing self-organized groups
truly can be.
This is not like any session you've seen at ALA. Stop by on either Saturday
or Sunday, from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm at the Washington Convention Center, Room
101 and be part of this unique experience. The session will be facilitated
by Susan E. Fox, CAE of the Forbes Group. Don't miss the sessions everyone
will be talking about after conference. Be part of it. It will be a great
learing experience and fun... Put it on your planner today!!!
