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
  • Name
  • Title
  • Affiliation
  • 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.

Thanks!

Hi Leighann,

Do you have answers to these questions about speakers?

Do the speakers for the Smart investing@your [1] library® need to be registered for conference?

They have completed speaker waivers- do they need name badges ?

The already submitted A-V equipment request includes a sound card for the computer

Do I need to order speakers too- or do they come with the sound card?

Thanks and look forward to your reply.

Best,

Margaret

I thought this program proposal was being converted to a webinar...? Is it now a discussion forum?

Hi Liz,

I'm going back through info and making sure everything is clear since this is so very different.  Our committees are partnering on having a flipped program:  Would like to have the Slam the Boards webinar on May 21, and the in-person discussion forum to follow up at ALA Annual on June 26.  During the interim, we'll encourage participants to try out Slam the Boards as answering librarians on June 10.

One last question - the PDF from earlier for the Calendar Overview mentions that speaker confirmation letters should go out by Jan. 30th. - is this still correct? 

Thanks,

Donna

Liz,  the attached document is our final program description.  You will see two listed in the doc - the first one is our original and the second one is a slightly longer description.

If there is space we would like to use the longer description.

We are still working on 1 more possible speaker.  I will post that information as soon as I have it.

Please let me know if you have any questions or need any other information.

Thanks,

Donna
