Today is the cutoff for submitting a proposal to present at ALA (American Library Association) next June in Chicago. The selection committee will release names of winners in early December. Next month I’ll learn if the presentation I’m part of has been chosen for National Science Teachers Association in April in Boston. I’m also thinking I’ll submit something with Mary Jo Fresch for International Literacy Association (ILA) next year in Columbus, Ohio. Haven’t started thinking about that one yet. One of my favorites is Texas Library Association (TLA), which will be in Houston in March. Hoping for a sponsorship there.Some of these conferences will work out and some may not. I try to get the big dates pinned down as early as possible to make it easier to fill in other opportunities as they come along.
