CFP: ACRL Programs at 2012 ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim

ACRL invites its committees, sections, interest groups and individual members to consider submitting a program proposal for the 2012 ALA Annual Conference in Anaheim.

There will be a virtual meeting on December 9, 2010, at 11:00 a.m. CST for ACRL units and members interested in submitting a proposal for a 2012 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. Please note that the Annual Conference program planning process spans twenty months, until Annual 2012.

2012 ALA Annual Conference Program Proposal forms will be due May 2, 2011. The ACRL Annual Conference Programs Committee will review and select 2012 Annual Conference programs, and notifications will be issued before the 2011 ALA Annual Conference.
