Call for ALCTS Program and Pre-conference Proposals for ALA Annual 2012

Call for ALCTS Program and Pre-conference Proposals for ALA Annual 2012

The ALCTS Program Committee invites program and pre-conference proposals for ALA Annual 2012 in Anaheim, California. The dates of the 2012 conference are June 21-26.

If you're interested in planning a pre-conference or program, please complete the appropriate web form (see below) and be prepared to visit with the Program Committee during ALA Annual 2011 in New Orleans.  Appointments with the committee usually take about 15 minutes.

The committee and ALCTS staff will help refine your ideas and coordinate logistics.  You don't need to have all the details when you initially fill out the proposal form or visit the committee to pitch your idea.  And although programs or pre-conferences often originate with ALCTS sections or interest groups, they can also come from individuals or other groups.

Proposal forms are located at:

Beginning in 2012, ALCTS plans to offer in-person and virtual pre-conferences.  (A virtual pre-conference would likely consist of a series of 3-4 webinars in the weeks leading up to the Annual Conference.)  If you are interested in planning a virtual pre-conference, please indicate this in the "Additional Information" section of the proposal form.


More information about the planning process can be found at

Please contact me or any other member of the ALCTS Program Committee with questions.
