Call for host institution, AAAL Fall 2019 meeting

Are you and your colleagues interested in showcasing your library and campus? Would you like to host academic librarians from around Alberta for a learning and networking event? The Alberta Association of Academic Libraries (AAAL) is currently seeking a host institution for our Fall meeting scheduled for November 2019 (date tbd with host). Interested institutions should complete this google form by Friday, Aug 2.

What’s involved in hosting a AAAL meeting? Here are the basic requirements:

  • Meeting space for 60 attendees for a keynote presentation and other workshop/learning activities
  • Standard technology for presentations/meetings — overhead projector, microphones, computer with Internet connectivity
  • Guest wifi
  • Space for participants to eat lunch — this can be in the same space and/or a nearby space; catering (lunch/coffee breaks) is sponsored by AAAL

As the Workshop Committee develops themes and programming, we invite potential hosts to share their ideas with us.

If you’re interested in hosting but cannot accommodate the Fall 2019 meeting, consider getting a jump on the Spring 2020 call for hosts by completing the Spring call for hosts form here.

Thank you for considering this request. Questions or comments about hosting can be directed to Angie Mandeville (afm1@ualberta.ca) or Jessie Loyer (jloyer@mtroyal.ca).

Kind regards,

Angie Mandeville, AAAL Workshop Committee Chair

Jessie Loyer & Ebony Magnus, AAAL Co-Chairs
