Tell YALSA your great ideas! It’s time to think about programs for ALA’s 2011 Annual Conference in New Orleans June 23 â€“ 28, 2011. If you think you would like to present a program for YALSA at Annual 2011 you need to complete an online form at:
You can turn in a form for any program idea you have, but YALSA’s Program Clearinghouse Committee is specifically looking for programs that address the following topics: 1) Engaging the after school crowd, 2) Promoting reading with web 2.0 tools, 3) Innovative teen programming, 4) Programming for older teens and 5) Managing your teen advisory group.
Other desirable traits in programs are: 1) those that include speakers or presenters from outside the library community, 2) those that offer practical information attendees can take back home and implement ASAP and 3) programs that are interactive.
Anyone can submit a proposal. You don’t have to be affiliated with a YALSA Committee/jury/taskforce. Only one proposal per person and/or group is permitted. Proposals that advertise or promote only one particular product or author will not be considered. If your proposal is accepted, you will be expected to fund your own travel and related expenses at the conference. All proposals must be turned in by January 19th 2010.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
