Discussion Affiliates Showcase 2013: Call for Presentations at ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.

by Elaine Franco on Sat, Feb 23, 2013 at 10:21 pm

Dear ALCTS Affiliates:

Call for Presentations at ALA Annual Conference 2013 in Chicago.

ALCTS Affiliates Showcase
Saturday June 29, 2013 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
ALA Annual Conference, Chicago

Dear ALCTS Affiliates:

Call for Presentations at ALA Annual Conference 2013 in Chicago.

ALCTS Affiliates Showcase
Saturday June 29, 2013 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
ALA Annual Conference, Chicago

How was your state or regional library conference this year? See a great program or put one on that got rave reviews?
Let everyone else get a chance to learn about it. You have already done the hard work of putting together a program and have even presented it at least once. Volunteer to present it again during the Affiliates Showcase.

Affiliates Showcase is a program from the ALCTS Affiliate Relations Committee offered for the first time in 2012. We
had a successful, well-attended program and want to continue to bring the fantastic and informative presentations we
see at our state and regional meetings to ALA Annual Conference.

Presentations can be either a repeat of the program given on the local level (up to 30 minutes) or an abridged version of it.

This is a reminder to pull that presentation off the shelf and do it again or tell us about someone who did a great job and we will contact them.

Take pride in the hard work you do and get recognized for it at ALA Annual.

The setup for the program will be theater style, with a standing podium, a head table, mics at the table, on the podium and on the floor, a screen, a projector, and a computer. Just bring your thumb drive for slides. If someone wants to bring their own laptop we can plug it in. Handouts (not required) are on your own. Slides and PowerPoint presentations can be posted after the conference on the ALA Connect site.

FYI: Presentation slides and notes from the 2012 ALCTS Affiliates Showcase program
at the ALA Annual Conference have been posted in the ALCTS Affiliates space in ALA
Connect. To view this Post in Connect, go to http://connect.ala.org/node/182308  

Contact: Susan Mueller, Program Planner, muellersm@unk.edu, before March 1, 2013 for best consideration.
Other presentations may be considered later, space permitting. Providing access to slides, summaries, or
reviews of the presentation would be a plus.

Affiliates Showcase is a new program from the Affiliate Relations Committee (formerly Council of Regional Groups, CRG), a new division committee of ALCTS. We want to bring the fantastic and informative presentations we see at our state and regional meetings to ALA Annual.

Presentations can be either a repeat of the program given on the local level (up to 30 minutes), an abridged version of it, or even just a poster session about it.

We put out a call for presentations earlier, but many of you had not gone to your conferences yet. This is a reminder to pull that presentation off the shelf and do it again or tell us about someone who did a great job and we will contact them about doing it again.

Take pride in the hard work you do and get recognized for it at ALA Annual.

Contact:  Susan Mueller, Program Planner, muellersm@unk.edu, for Affiliate Relations Committee, ALCTS by April 2, 2012.  Anything received after that will be considered if space is available.
