ACRL Program Proposals for 2019 ALA Annual Conference

ACRL invites its committees, sections, interest groups and individual members to consider submitting program proposals for the 2019 ALA Annual Conference in Washington, DC.

For the second year, program proposals will be submitted via a centralized submission site for all ALA Divisions, RoundTables, Committees, and Offices.  ACRL members must choose “ACRL” on the first screen of the submission form in order to have the program included in the ACRL pool of programs to be reviewed.

There will be a virtual meeting at 3:00 p.m. Central on April 26, 2018, for ACRL units and members interested in submitting proposals for a 2019 ALA Annual Conference program. The purpose of this meeting is to provide potential conference program planners with an understanding of the Annual Conference program planning process, including budgets, timelines, and planning tips.

RSVP online to attend the April 26 virtual meeting. Once login instructions are available, attendees will be notified.

2019 ALA Annual Conference program proposals are due August 19, 2018.  The ACRL Professional Development Committee will review proposal and select 2019 Annual Conference programs, with notifications issued in October 2018.

More details about the Annual Conference program process are on the ACRL website. Contact ACRL Senior Program Officer Megan Griffin at or ACRL Manager of Professional Development Margot Conahan at with questions concerning the program proposal process.
