CFP: Pennsylvania Library Association

The 2014 PaLA Conference Program Committee is now accepting conference session proposals for the 2014 conference, PA Libraries: Marketplace of Ideas. The conference will take place September 28 through October 1, 2014 at the Lancaster County Convention Center/Lancaster Marriott.  If you are, or know someone that is, an expert on a topic that you feel will be of interest to librarians, we invite you to submit a proposal for a session.

While all program submissions will be considered, the Program Committee is particularly interested in receiving proposals on topics suggested by previous PaLA conference attendees:

Please note that the individual suggestions can be viewed beginning on page 3 of this document.

All proposals should be submitted via the online program proposal link.  For a working copy of the form, or to view the questions in advance of submission, a PDF of the form is available for download.  The link to both the online form and PDF are available on the Annual Conference Page of the PaLA website.

The deadline for proposals is Sunday, April 6, 2014.  The program committee will notify all submitters regarding the acceptance of their proposal(s) in early May.  Poster session proposals will be solicited in mid-April through mid-May.

Thank you in advance to all that submit proposals, we appreciate your dedication to PaLA and to Pennsylvania’s libraries!
