    Dear ACRL CoPA Leaders,

    Happy New Year!

    As we gear up for 2017 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Atlanta, please review and share the following information with your member leaders that will be onsite. 

    AV Information

    ALA Conference Services recommends confirming your AV request at the audiovisual desk located in the ALA office area – Thomas Murphy Ballroom 1-2, in the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC). If you requested AV during the meeting request time frame and were NOT contacted, it should be considered an approved request.

    If you arrive to your session and it is missing AV equipment that has been requested and approved, then please contact ALA Conference Services at 404-222-5300. Unless you report missing AV, ALA will be charged for ordered materials even if they are not present.

    Room set-up information

    Please note that members are prohibited from making room set changes in the convention center and hotel meeting rooms. ALA Conference Services has set the rooms to accommodate all groups that will use that space during the day, not a single group. If a room is missing chairs, then please use the number above and let ALA Conference Services know.

    After the conference, please notify your staff liaison of any issues with AV and room set-up.  The reports will be compiled and sent to ALA Conference Services. 

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Safe travels,



    Elois Sharpe
