**Who can propose a program, institute or preconference?** Any current ASCLA member can propose one of these events, however we strongly encourage support and sponsorship from one of our interest groups! If you’re not an interest group member, consider joining one and using the group as a springboard for your conference event ideas. Check out the list of our interest groups, contact information for interest group leaders and instructions on how to join.

**What sorts of topics are of interest?** The best topics represent ASCLA’s core member areas–state library agencies, special populations librarians, independent librarians and library consultants, and resource-sharing librarians at networks and cooperatives–but are also of interest to librarians throughout the profession from all types of libraries. Keep in mind that topics should still be relevant in January and June 2014 when they are finally presented! You can browse our interest group list here for inspiration.

Please share this message with colleagues and distribution lists as appropriate!

We look forward to reviewing your submissions. :o)

This group is open to anyone with an interest in the future of libraries.  We will examine changes in the world around us, examine different service models, new technologies, determine what our customers value and what our non-customers are finding elsewhere.  We will submit a recommendation to the ASCLA President for two areas that we think libraries should focus on to increase their value and insure their viability in the future.
