Dear ASCLA Members,
It’s that time of year again – conference program proposal time!
ASCLA is calling for program and preconference/institute proposals for 2016 (Midwinter 2016, January 8-12, will be in Boston, MA. and Annual Conference 2016, June 23-28, will be in Orlando, FL). The deadline to receive online proposals for 2016 is May 8, 2015. Once collected, the ASCLA office will send the proposals to the ASCLA Conference Programming Committee to oversee, organize and recommend for approval to the ASCLA board at the Annual Conference in San Francisco, 2015.
The online proposal form is here: https://www.conferenceabstracts.com/cfp2/login.asp?EventKey=CTTMUHUN. Please click on this link and then click on “Click here to begin a new Proposal.”
We are counting on you to propose some sterling programming at our 2016 conferences so be sure to spread the word!

The deadline for a call for ASCLA proposals for institutes at the ALA 2013 Midwinter Meeting in Seattle and programs and preconferences at the ALA 2013 Annual Conference in Chicago has been extended to June 1, 2012.
What’s this all about? Midwinter Institutes are ticketed full or half-day workshops held the Friday of the Midwinter Meeting. Annual Preconferences are ticketed full or half-day workshops held the Friday of Annual Conference. Programs are part of the ALA Annual Conference, are included with conference registration, and are held Saturday through Monday of the conference. Check out what ASCLA’s doing at this year’s Annual Conference.
What’s the best way to propose a program? We encourage members with programming ideas to partner with one of our ASCLA interest groups to sponsor the program. Review our list of interest groups and learn how to join a group at the ASCLA website.
More information about the proposal process–including some important notes about overall scheduling changes to both Midwinter and Annual–is in this post in ASCLA’s ALA Connect space. Please check out this post before making your submission.

We look forward to receiving your proposals!
