Each year, YALSA sponsors preconference workshops and programs for the ALA Annual Conference. Through May 31, we're seeking your proposals for a conference presentation at next year's event in Chicago, June 27 to July 2. As you can see from our request for proposal, next year we are emphasizing creative conference proposals, highlighting best practices and innovations in five priority areas:
- Young Adult Literature/Readers' Advisory
- Advocacy & Activism
- Programming & Outreach
- Research & Best Practices
- Teen Spaces (physical & virtual)
- Youth Participation
What innovations have you brought in these five areas? What inspiration have you found in our 30 Days series that could apply to them? YALSA is as creative and innovative as its members, which is to say very creative and highly innovative. So fill out our Annual 2013 request for proposal and tell your peers about everything you've accomplished at your library!
