Hello Everyone,

Attached is the list of 2017 Midwinter Meeting room locations. Program planners and presenters: please note that there is a second tab of all ASCLA meetings that were requested by committees, separate from the All-Committee meeting. The All-Committee meeting will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017, from 3-5:30 in GWCC, room A410. 

 

Please pass this along to your committee members. Conference Services made every effort to accommodate everyone, however in a few instances Conf. Svcs. may have had to change your meeting set in order to accommodate your meeting.

 

A friendly reminder that you are prohibited from making room set changes in the Convention Center and all hotels. The rooms are set to accommodate ALL groups and not only one group.  Any fees to reset a room will be charged to the sponsoring group (ASCLA) should this occur.

 

Below is the list of convention center/hotel abbreviations:

 

GWCC – Georgia World Congress Center

HILTON – Hilton Atlanta

HYATT – Hyatt Regency Atlanta

MARRIOTT – Marriott Marquis Atlanta

OMNI – Omni Hotel & Resorts @ CNN Center *

SHERATON – Sheraton Atlanta

WESTIN – Westin Peachtree Plaza #

 

*Headquarters Hotel

#Co-Headquarters Hotel

 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  If you have any cancellations or changes, please let me know by Tuesday, November 1st.   We will send out all the catering contacts and menus later next week.

Thank you and we look forward to a great Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta!

      

Best Wishes,

 

Susan

Discussion 2017 ASCLA Program Information for planners/presenters - Sept. 2, 2016 deadline

by Susan Hornung-IL (staff) on Wed, Aug 17, 2016 at 05:58 pm

Hello Everybody,

I hope you each received my message letting you know that your program proposal for ASCLA for 2017 was approved.

Hello Everybody,

I hope you each received my message letting you know that your program proposal for ASCLA for 2017 was approved.

I have set up a group in ALA Connect to communicate with you here: http://connect.ala.org/node/153502. Those of you who are not ALA members will have to set up a free account (by clicking “Join” in the upper right corner) and let me know. I’ll add you to the group once I hear from you. I was able to add the following people already:

Amanda Wilson

Betsy Diamant-Cohen

Lydia Collins

Mary Kearns-Kaplan

Michelle Bickert

Robin Brown

Sharon Grover

Wendy Cornelisen

 IMPORTANT:If there is anyone else you want to add to the group, please send me their name and email.

All of our work will be done in Connect, so please make sure to login and turn on your e-mail notifications for this group, by logging into Connect, clicking on the arrow next to “Your Account” in the upper right corner, clicking on “Edit Your Email Notifications” and following the instructions from there. Using the group helps centralize information—both info that is shared with the team, and info that you provide to staff—so that it doesn’t get lost or misplaced in our inboxes. We’ll be posting all the announcements, deadlines, room assignments, and other information to this group

 

Our first deadline will be September 2nd. We are asking you to finalize the titles and descriptions and any confirmed speakers for your event, so that we can begin promoting the program slate this fall and also so that we can provide information to Conference Services for logistics. We’ve posted a spreadsheet of the titles and descriptions here: http://connect.ala.org/node/256671.  Please respond with a reply/comment in Connect on this post prior to September 2nd confirming the following: Final title, Confirmed description, Any confirmed (at this point) speakers for your event.

 

For your convenience, we’ve attached an FAQ sheet to help you confirm titles and descriptions. We will also be providing other information and documentation regarding deadlines, A/V, speaker waivers and other important logistics. These will be posted in the Connect group soon.

 

I hope you are enjoying these last few weeks of summer, and we’ll be in touch soon regarding this first deadline. Questions? You can post those in response to this post as well and we'll do our best to answer.

 

Thanks, everybody – let me know if you have any questions.

 

Best Wishes,

 

Susan
