The Public Library Association (PLA) is now planning the 2008 PLA National Conference, which will be held in Minneapolis, March 25-29, 2008. The most important part of that planning is assembling the slate of preconferences and the 100+ concurrent program sessions that will be presented during the conference. The deadline for submitting all proposals is November 30, 2006.

The proposal process is completely electronic: only proposals submitted through this online process will be considered. The online forms are located Here. The online form is self explanatory but it will be helpful for you to review the list of proposal instructions that explain what you will need to provide on the proposal form. It is best to have as much information as possible before you begin entering your proposal. However, incomplete proposals can be saved and revised at any time until November 30, 2006. After this date, the online form will no longer be available for entering new proposals.

If you have any questions or need additional information, contact the PLA Office, 800/545-2433, ext. 5027. Program organizers will be notified of the status of his/her proposal beginning in February 2007.

The Public Library Association (PLA) is a division of the American Library Association. PLA’s core purpose is to strengthen public libraries and their contribution to the communities they serve and its mission is to enhance the development and effectiveness of public library staff and public library services.
