Call for ALCTS program and preconference proposals for ALA Annual 2013

Call for ALCTS program and preconference proposals for ALA Annual 2013

The ALCTS Program Committee invites proposals for ALCTS programs and preconferences for ALA Annual 2013 in Chicago, Illinois. The dates of the 2013 Annual Conference are June 27-July 2.

If you're interested in planning a preconference or program, please complete the appropriate web form (see below) and plan to visit with the Program Committee during ALA Annual 2012 in Anaheim.  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 preconferences often originate with ALCTS sections, committees, or interest groups, they can also come from individuals or other groups.

Beginning with Annual 2013, all program time slots are either 60 or 90 minutes.  All ALCTS programs take place during Annual Conference in Chicago on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday.
In-person preconferences (may be 1 day or 2 days) take place in Chicago on the Thursday and/or Friday immediately prior to Annual Conference.
