Call for Proposals for ALC 2014

The Alberta Library Conference (ALC) 2014 Planning Committee, with support from the Library Association of Alberta (LAA) and the Alberta Library Trustees Association (ALTA), is pleased to announce that the call for proposals for the 2014 Alberta Library Conference is open.
The conference takes place in Jasper, Alberta April 24 to 27, 2014.

The ALC 2014 conference theme is "Be the Change."
We all want to be awesome at work and at home.
We can change our mindset and in doing so be happier in all that we do - in the workplace and outside it.
How can you be the change in your individual environments?
How do we influence others and become an even more productive and effective organization?

Alberta Library Conference provides a range of sessions of interest to the library community in Alberta.
Proposals from small rural libraries to large academic institutions demonstrate the complexity of librarianship as well as the adaptability and diversity of those who work within them.
We encourage proposals from academic, public, school and special libraries of all sizes for consideration to present at the conference.

If you would like to be part of our program celebrating resilience, adaptability and willingness to make our workplace a better, more productive environment, submit a proposal at Alberta Library Conference 2014 Call for Session Proposals <>

We are interested in receiving proposals from trustees for sessions which will provide education and training for Library Board members.
If you are a public librarian, please share this call for submissions with your Board. In addition, if trustees have suggestions for speakers or topics of interest to trustees, they are invited to send them to Diane Osberg to see if a session can be developed.

Submission deadline is September 30, 2013
