2014 Annual Meeting: Beyond Boundaries - San Antonio, TX - July 12-15

The FCIL-SIS Education Committee wants to draw on the expertise and ideas of our amazing colleagues in creating and refining program proposals for the 2014 AALL Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas.  Thus, the point of this Google Site is to solicit ideas for speakers, subject matter, format, or anything else that might make a particular program fun, interesting, and educational.  At the Education Committee meeting, we generate a dozen or so ideas for programs.  These are not "final" program proposals but only the initial ideas for relevant and interesting programs.  If you would like to propose a program and get ideas from others, please feel free to add a program idea to the list.  If you would like to coordinate or otherwise participate in one of the programs, please note that in your "comment" to the program idea.  (Note: In order to edit and comment, I must give you permission. Please send me an email with your email address and I will grant you editing permissions).

Once you decide to coordinate a program, you must make a formal Program Proposal to AALL.  If you would like us to help you refine your program proposal, please submit it to Dennis Sears and Teresa Miguel-Stearns by September 15 so that we have sufficient time to review, edit, and return the proposal to you.  These formal proposal are submitted electronically via the AALL website, including the draft submission to Dennis and Teresa.  More information is on the AALL website: Information for Program Proposers.  The AALL proposal submission deadline is October 7, 2013.

AMPC hosted a webinar in preparation for the Seattle conference that provided tips on how to navigate the program proposal process, including information on what AMPC will be looking for in the proposals when making their selections. The webinar is now available to everyone.  Complete the simple registration process and you will be directed to the recorded session.

From the AALL website: The theme of the 2014 Annual Meeting in San Antonio, "Beyond Boundaries," will challenge all of us to explore the value, scope, and dynamism of our roles as legal information professionals. The programming will be designed to give librarians the tools to affirm their integral place in the greater legal community.

Any questions regarding this process should be directed to Teresa Miguel-Stearns (teresa.miguel@yale.edu) or Dennis Sears (searsd@lawgate.byu.edu).
