Hello to all fellow 2010 Emerging Leaders, a few things to let you know about:

We have a facebook group. It is a CLOSED group so only members of the 2010 class can join: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=165586907738

Hello to all fellow 2010 Emerging Leaders, a few things to let you know about:

We have a facebook group. It is a CLOSED group so only members of the 2010 class can join: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=165586907738

For anyone who is around the Thursday night before we start (14th), Darcel set up a little ice breaker and anyone who wants to attend can come with us to watch the CELTICS vs BULLS at the Boston Garden! Please call the Celtics Sales Office at 866-4CELTIX and mention that you are a member of the ALA EMERGING LEADERS group to purchase a ticket and chill with us. We have a small but enthusiatic group going.

The Friday night after (15th) we are going to be having an unwinding social event. It is NOT mandatory that you attend, but I have a feeling most of us will want to! The event starts at 7pm and from 9pm-on, past EL alumni will join us for a big meetup/reunion/networking session. It will be fun and informal. We narrowed down the places to host it to http://jjfoleyscafe.com/ or http://www.districtboston.com/ Please let ME know what works for you.

Thanks for listening! JP

ALA /EBSS Committee Meeting Minutes

EBSS 2011 Program Planning Meeting

January 4, 2009

Online via www.dimdim.com

 

Name of person submitting minutes: Margie Ruppel

 

Members present: Stephanie Davis-Kahl, Vanessa Earp, Matthew Paris, Margie Ruppel, Scott Lancaster, and Stephanie Rosenblatt.

 

Meeting was called to order at 1:02 pm CST by SDK.

 

SDK welcomed the members and went over the meeting’s goals: to review documents, brainstorm program topics, and answer questions.

 

2011 Annual Conference Program Planning Timeline was shared via email and dimdim.

  • We have 18 months before the program
  • May: proposal due to ACRL
  • November: contract with speakers due

 

Information about planning:

  • At the 2011 program, all members of our committee will play a role.
  • We can co-sponsor with other ACRL groups, which might be a good idea for collaborating and for budget concerns.
  • We will do as much work virtually as possible.  Store documents and use the discussion board in ALA Connect.

 

Committee members involved in previous conference program planning recommends doing the following differently:

  • Make it more interactive.  The only issue with an interactive program is the amount of time. We normally stick to programs that are 1 1/2 hours and the first few minutes are taken up by the distinguished librarian award.
  • If we want give-a-ways we pay for those upfront and then ACRL reimburses us if there is money.  They bought too many give-aways last time and could be spent on something else next time.

 

Possible topics for 2011 program include:

  • Web 2.0 for promoting and reaching users; could personalize it for social science and behavioral science librarians but that might make it too narrow for a wider audience
  • Educational History and institutinal history--how can librarians promote and cooperate on thse projects
  • Julie Evans from Project Tomorrow/Speak Up www.tomorrow.org
  • CMC Curriculum materials centers – possible speaker is Alison Head at University of WA - Promoting the CMC to area school districts
  • Maybe we could get someone who edits a student journal for teachers/ grad students involved in masters programs; how they find/review work and how it is disseminated, perhaps the impact of publication on student engagement (I'm just thinking that my grad students invest a lot of energy and that the expertise they are gaining is lost to the greater community )

 

Past topics include open access, grants, and communication.  All past topics are listed athttp://www.ala.org/ala/mgrps/divs/acrl/about/sections/ebss/ebssconferenceinfo/conferenceinfo.cfm

 

Action Items for all committee members:

  • Accept your appointment to the committee if you have not already.
  • Think more about the topics we brainstormed today.
  • If you think of an idea for a title, make it punchy, dynamic, and eye-catching.
  • Look at ALA Connect for documents and discussion board.

 

Next meeting - February: pinning down a topic, program track, abstract, learning outcomes.  Plus other logistics.

 

Meeting was adjourned at 2:10 pm CST by SDK.

Discussion Planning programs for the 2011 ALA Annual Conference (crossposting)

by Julianna Kloeppel (staff) on Tue, Jan 12, 2010 at 04:19 pm

Dear PLA Leaders,

It's time to start planning programs for the 2011 ALA Annual Conference.  That conference will be held in New Orleans, La., June 23-28, 2011.  A copy of the proposal form is attached.  It will also be available on the PLA web site (www.pla.org, under the Conferences and Events button).  Paper copies of the form will be available at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Boston at the PLA All-Committee Meeting and at the PLA table (#24) in the ALA Office (Convention Center, Room 210 A-C).

Dear PLA Leaders,

It's time to start planning programs for the 2011 ALA Annual Conference.  That conference will be held in New Orleans, La., June 23-28, 2011.  A copy of the proposal form is attached.  It will also be available on the PLA web site (www.pla.org, under the Conferences and Events button).  Paper copies of the form will be available at the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Boston at the PLA All-Committee Meeting and at the PLA table (#24) in the ALA Office (Convention Center, Room 210 A-C).

Some important things to keep in mind: proposals do not need to be sponsored by a committee or other PLA unit; any speaker who has not been formally invited should be identified as a "potential speaker; select program topics that appeal to a wide range of library staff; regional topics are better received at ALA Annual Conference than at PLA National Conference.  A copy of the PLA policies covering speakers is attached to the proposal form.

Deadline for submitting proposals is May 1, 2010.  They can be sent to my attention at PLA, 50 E. Huron St., Chicago, IL 60611 or to lbostrom@ala.org.

The PLA 2011 Annual Conference Program Subcommittee will review and approve proposals during the 2010 ALA Annual Conference (June 24-29 in Washington, D.C.). 

PLA programs consistently draw large audiences. During the upcoming Annual Conference, PLA is sponsoring 20 programs and I hope you are planning to attend some of them! 

Please let me know if you have any questions.
