Get Connected

Are you talking to the right people?

Some of the most valuable experiences can come from unexpected conversations, and the Annual Meeting & Conference offers countless opportunities to connect with your peers and enrich your professional network. Here are just a few highlights:

Opening Reception

Saturday, July 13 / 5:00–6:30 p.m.
Walter E. Washington Convention Center Exhibit Hall

The Annual Meeting will kick off with an Opening Reception on the exhibit hall floor. This light hors d’oeuvres and cocktail reception, featuring local favorites, is a great way to network and visit exhibitors without scheduling conflicts—allowing plenty of time for dine-arounds and receptions to follow.

A ticket to this event is included with a full Conference or Per-Day (Saturday) registration; additional guest tickets are available for purchase.

Meet the Candidates for the AALL Executive Board

Monday, July 15 / 8:45–9:45 a.m.

Come with your questions, and find out what each candidate plans for the future of your Association.
