GODORT Call for Program Proposals for the 2018 ALA Annual Conference

ALA has changed the program submission process for its annual conferences, starting with the 2018 Annual Conference.  Round tables will be allotted one chair's program; all other programs will selected by ALA through a jury process.  As GODORT has historically sponsored two programs at Annual, we are extending an invitation to our members to submit program proposals for sponsorship consideration for the 2018 conference.  The GODORT Steering Committee will evaluate all program proposals and choose the program(s) it would like to sponsor for 2018 Annual.
Program proposals should be submitted as a Word or PDF document and include the following information:

  • Name and email address of submitter
  • Program title
  • Short program description (100 word max)
  • Full program description (as it would appear in the online scheduler)
  • Type of presentation (panel presentation, etc)
  • Names and email addresses of presenters (if known)
  • Learning objectives (e.g. upon completion, participants will be able to...)

To ensure that your program proposal meets ALA's new standards, please review the 2018 program application and proposal review guidelines: 

Program proposals should be submitted to Hallie Pritchett (hpritche@uga.edu) by August 11th, 2017.
