The 2014 Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) announces the Call for Program and Workshop Proposals for AALL's 107th Annual Meeting and Conference in San Antonio. The theme for the conference, "Beyond Boundaries," will challenge all of us to explore the value, scope, and dynamism of our roles as legal information professionals.
You may be aware of the recent upgrades made to AALL's conference education. You may have even attended some programs in Seattle that reflected these changes.
We plan to build on that momentum for San Antonio. AALL members are invited to turn their great ideas into learner-centric programs offering high-level content that can be delivered in an energetic and engaging format. We want to give librarians the tools to affirm their integral place in the greater legal community.
Being a part of the programming experience can be incredibly rewarding. Think about solutions to workplace challenges. Are your colleagues buzzing about any hot topics? Is there something out there that you’d like to explore further? Were you recently exposed to a different perspective that made a difference in your job? What’s changing in the legal information landscape?
Use the online Program and Workshop Proposal Collection site to develop your proposal in your own workspace, share it with your colleagues, and submit it online by October 7. Explore helpful resources in the Information for Program Proposers section of AALLNET, including:
All proposers will be notified by December about the status of their proposals. The submission deadline is October 7.
The AMPC looks forward to seeing your program and workshop proposals!
