Dear ACRL CoPA Leaders,
I hope your holiday season is off to a great start!
Although the 2018 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans is not until June 21–26, we are already planning for it and I’ll need to have all AC meeting requests by January 5, 2018. Please read the following message carefully, and confirm with me if your group is meeting.
Based on member feedback, ALA Conference Services has made some changes to have a more sustainable and navigable Annual Conference. To accommodate meeting requests and reduce the campus size, most meetings will be assigned one-hour or one-and-a-half-hour time slots. You will be able to request your preferred time slot, but please be aware that requests are based on availability and time requests may not be honored.
We sincerely thank you in advance for your patience and understanding, as we work with ALA to respond to member feedback to reduce the conference footprint while trying to accommodate as many meetings as possible. ALA Conference Services will confirm meeting times in spring 2018, and I will send the preliminary schedule once it is released.
ACRL staff will enter your meeting requests for the 2018 Annual Conference into ALA’s meeting database, so please send your meeting requests to me via email by Friday, January 5 per the following guidelines:
