About ALAO Annual Conferences
The Conference Planning Committee includes volunteers from the ALAO membership and is chaired by the currentVice President/President-Elect of the organization. Each year, the committee develops a theme for the upcoming conference, sends out a call for proposals for presentations and poster sessions, performs a blind review of the proposals, constructs the program schedule, selects a keynote speaker, selects the venue for the next year's conference, coordinates the current year's conference facilities, contacts vendors to exhibit at the conference, arranges for the conference attendee gifts, and processes evaluations after the conference. The committee generally meets once a month and frequently corresponds by email in between meetings.
If you would be interested in serving on the Conference Planning Committee, please contact the current Vice President/President-Elect.
