Information on the 2014 AALL Annual Meeting

AALL Annual Meeting registration is now open, so please register ASAP for what promises to be a down-home, Texas-style conference in San Antonio, July 12-15, 2014!.  An exciting Mexican law session is scheduled, and supplemental FCIL educational programming will be held during selected meetings.  And, we encourage FCIL-SIS members to increase the overall FCIL programming by submitting proposals for Hot Topics, Coffee Sessions, and Poster Sessions.  Our Education Committee Co-Chairs, Teresa Miguel and Dennis Sears, are eager to help FCIL-SIS members craft their proposals.

Looking for ideas?  Look no further than the special program proposal site set up by the Education Committee:
.  This site will help link you up with other members who might have a similar idea as you!  And don't forget - SIS members can always propose a webinar for AALL membership on "topics valuable to law librarians and legal information professionals in associated environments'.
