The Conference of Newer Law Librarians (CONELL) is held every year on the Saturday of AALL's Annual Meeting & Conference. CONELL welcomes newer AALL members by introducing them to the Association, its leaders, one another. Attendees have the opportunity to talk with representatives from AALL's committees and special interest sections to learn firsthand how to get involved and maximize the benefits of Association membership.

Attendees who are arriving on Friday, July 14, are invited to attend "Dutch treat dinners" at 6:30 p.m.—a great way to meet one another and members of the CONELL Committee.

Saturday's events start with a continental breakfast at 8:00 a.m., with the conference beginning promptly at 8:30 a.m. Attendees will meet the AALL Executive Board, participate in speed networking, and explore the AALL Marketplace to learn more about getting involved in member communities. Lunch is followed by a tour of Austin and additional opportunities to network with colleagues and meet with possible mentors. For questions about the CONELL program, contact a member of the Conference of Newer Law Librarians (CONELL) Committee .

"CONELL was the first program I attended at the Annual Meeting and probably the program I have found most rewarding and vital to my career. I am still good friends with a number of people from the 2003 Seattle edition of CONELL. I also use many of the tips and skills I learned there on a regular basis. While I know the shortened Annual Meeting is packed with things to do, I think CONELL should be an essential program for every first-time attendee."
