LAMA Program Committee appointments, Annual 2007

Posted for Tom Schneiter, LAMA Program Committee (Chair 2005-07)

Greetings! I have been asked about scheduling appointments with the LAMA Program Committee at ALA Annual 2007 in Washington. There is no time like the present to get those schedules set!

A general note on programs: LAMA programs require a minimum of 12 months lead time from initial proposal to the LAMA Program Committee to the actual presentation. LAMA pre-conferences require an 18-month lead time, so the time for those has passed for the 2008 Annual conference; if your committee has a fully developed and absolute killer pre-conference to propose, however, please feel free to visit the Program Committee at this Annual conference. For more details, visit the LAMA web site for documentation (Word document).

The LAMA Program Committee will be meeting in Washington on Sunday MORNING, June 24, in WCC Room 159B, and on Monday afternoon, June 25, in WCC Room 303. The chair of each program proposed for presentation at the Annual 2008 conference in Anaheim is required to visit the Program Committee at Annual 2007 to discuss the program proposal. Each meeting with the Program Committee is 15 minutes of collaborative examination of the proposed topic and speakers, with the result being a strong program that meets the strategic goals of LAMA.

Please send me a note with your intention to talk with the Program Committee, the name and contact information of the chair of each program being proposed, the tentative title of the program, the sponsoring LAMA section and committee of each program, and requests for three specific appointment times with the Committee (ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd).

The LAMA Program Committee will have time slots available between:
Sunday 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m
Monday 2:15 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

I will follow up your request quickly with your confirmed appointment time, so you can get your conference schedule together as early as possible. In that email, I will provide instructions on submitting the completed program proposal form prior to the Annual Conference.
