ALSC Accepting Program Proposals for 2011 Annual Conference

Thinking of submitting a program proposal for ALA 2011? The Association for Library Service to Children’s Program Coordinating Committee is still accepting proposals for innovative, creative programs that have broad appeal for the 2011 ALA Annual Conference to be held June 24-27, 2011 in New Orleans, LA.

The committee is looking for a wide range of themes and topics such as advocacy, multiculturalism, administration and management, early literacy, research, partnerships, best practices, programming, outreach and technology.

To submit a program, download the ALSC Program Proposal form. Once completed, submit to the ALSC Program Coordinating Committee Chair, Diane Janoff at or mail to: Diane Janoff, Queens Library-Poppenhusen, 121-23 14th Ave, College Point, NY 11356. For more information visit the ALSC Web site (scroll down to the bottom) or read the ALSC Program Proposal Information Sheet.

ALSC committees, members, and other interested individuals are welcome to submit a proposal. Individuals who are not members of an ALSC committee may want to seek a letter of support from an appropriate ALSC committee to strengthen their proposal. Please note that participants attending ALSC programs are seeking valuable educational experiences. Presentations should avoid being too limited in scope. The Program Coordinating Committee will not select a program session that suggests commercial sales or self-promotion.

Program proposals are due Friday, April 30, 2010.

If you have questions you may send them to ALSC Program Coordinating Committee Chair, Diane Janoff, at
