Call for Proposals: Due October 6
The 2015 Annual Meeting Program Committee (AMPC) announces the Call for Program and Workshop Proposals for AALL's 108th Annual Meeting and Conference in Philadelphia. Law librarians are working to assert their roles in the rapidly changing and ever-expanding world of legal information management through the connections they make, and by harnessing "The Power of Connection," we can propose new initiatives or programs, have difficult - but essential - conversations about tough topics, and motivate others to truly shine and succeed.
The AMPC and its dedicated Content Area Teams (CATs) have compiled a list of "must-have" program topics - timely topics that AALL members have identified as being vital to their professional education. Peruse the list - Perhaps one of the topics is exactly what your library has been tackling this year. Perhaps you know the perfect presenter. Perhaps a working group within your SIS has been brainstorming about the topic already. Propose a program! (And of course, if you are thinking about proposing a completely different program - go for it!)
Being a part of the programming experience can be incredibly rewarding. 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.
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 6. Explore helpful resources in the Information for Program Proposers section of AALLNET, including:
All proposers will be notified in December about the status of their proposals. The deadline for submission is October 6.
We hope we've piqued your interest for Philly, and we can't wait to see your proposals!
Holly M. Riccio, AALL President
