Call for Proposals Now Open: AALL 2013 Annual Meeting and Conference (Seattle)

By , September 10, 2012 1:09 pm

What are you planning to propose for Seattle that reflects the interests of your chapter?

The Call for Proposals for the 2013 Annual Meeting and Conference in Seattle is now open!  The AMPC invites chapter members to propose programs that engage the learner while addressing members’ issues and offering takeaways that can be applied in our workplace.

Members should look at the survey results for program ideas.  The results also identify similar challenges across library types and may be opportunities for collaboration on developing a program.

The Annual Meeting Program Ideas Community is a venue where all members can discuss program ideas and find other members to collaborate with on a proposal.

The proposal form is short but allows the proposer to really think about what they want to accomplish in their program.  The proposal form asks the following questions:

  • What are the takeaways that attendees will be able to use and apply to perform their jobs better?
  • How would you describe the problem/opportunity/scenario/challenge that reflects the takeaways?
  • Who needs to attend this session?
  • How much time is needed to effectively deliver this content?
  • What methods do you plan to employ to engage attendees and keep the energy level up?
  • Who should deliver this content, and why is he/she qualified to do it? (If this person is not an AALL member, are there anticipated expenses?)

Although the selection process no longer includes chapter sponsorship, proposers are encouraged to work with the chapter’s education committee or leadership.  They can review your proposal and offer suggestions before submission, and it lets them know what programs chapter members are proposing.

Chapter members are encouraged to reach out to Julie Pabarja, AMPC Chair, with any questions.
