woman-presenting-cropped-smaller-squareSLA is pleased to extend its request for SLA 2017 Annual Conference proposals to all SLA members—not just unit planners, as was previously the case.

SLA and the Annual Conference Advisory Council (ACAC) invite individuals to submit proposals for educational workshops and continuing education sessions to be considered for the conference schedule June 16–20, 2017 in Phoenix, AZ.

SLA is seeking creative, cutting-edge sessions designed to educate and inspire information professionals. The submission process is open now through October 26, 2016, with notification of approved sessions by the end of the year.

When submitting a proposal, please consider the following:

  • Educational workshops should relate to the SLA Core Competencies.
  • If applicable, indicate which of the conference’s four thematic Streams your workshop relates to: Leadership; Data Management; Intellectual Property; or Metrics, Analytics, and Assessment.
  • The level of your workshop: Fundamental, Intermediate, or Advanced for content.
  • Presentations can be submitted in varied time frames—20 minutes (Quick Takes), 60 minutes, 75 minutes, and 90 minutes.

To submit your great idea, the first step is to create an account on the submission site. Guidelines and reference documents are available on the submission site to assist you with the submission process.

Be a part of the professional development process in creating dynamic and thought-provoking content for the SLA 2017 Annual Conference. Submit your proposal and share your expertise and knowledge with colleagues.
