DUE JANUARY 30: Speaker and moderator names and details for your program
In order to have your speaker names included in the printed program book for Annual, we need to receive their information no later than Jan. 30.
Information should be posted here in Connect as a reply to this original post. Please do not e-mail information to me! Posting in Connect centralizes the information so that all staff members can access it, and so that it does not get lost in the flood of e-mails we are receiving at this time of year.
Speakers will be receiving a link via e-mail to a waiver form from ALA; it is important that they complete this form, as all conference programs will be audio recorded, and many will be video recorded. For this reason, please make sure that moderators' information is submitted as well. Due to this change, the division waiver form is no longer relevant. I will post additional info here about the waiver form as it becomes available. Right now, it appears that the waiver will go out in mid-February.
For each speaker, I will need the following information:
- Name of the program they are presenting at
- E-mail address
What if I add or remove a speaker after Jan. 30?
You can also post this information here, as a reply to this post. We will make batch updates to the online scheduler listing, but we cannot guarantee any changes to the printed program after Jan. 30. Ultimately we do need information for every speaker and moderator so that they can complete a waiver form.
I submitted info for a speaker; why are they not showing up in the online listing immediately?
Information here will need to be manually transferred to the online scheduler. We will do this in weekly batches to ensure accuracy and efficiency.
Questions? Please ask them here and I will respond so others can benefit from the information.
