The Call for Program Proposals for the 2017 OLA Conference, “Thriving Together” is now open.
We are excited to be combing the OLA & OASL conferences together this year. The conference will be extended to Saturday to accommodate this combined event.
The conference dates are Wednesday, April 19, 2017 for the preconference, and Thursday – Saturday, April 20-22, 2017 for the conference days.
We will be accepting proposals with or without sponsorships for the regular conference days. Preconference programs will need sponsorship. There is a combined submission form for both preconference and regular session proposals this year.
Follow the link to the Call for Proposals where you will find all the pertinent information, including the scoring rubric and the submission form: https://orlib17.wordpress.com/program/. The deadline for proposals is 10pm on Monday, September 26, 2016. Notifications will be sent out by Monday, October 24, 2016.
Let me know if there are any questions. Please send any questions or correspondence regarding programs to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to reading all the interesting proposals.
