Call for Program Proposals

Dear Colleagues,

The theme for this year’s Long Island Library conference is “Reach for the Stars” and will be held on Thursday, May 4, 2017, at the Melville Marriot. At this time we are asking the Library Associations and Divisions to submit their proposed program offerings. The attached sponsor form must be completed and returned no later than January 9, 2017.

Access the form 2017lilc_sponsorform

Due to rising costs and the high volume of presenters last year, only 3 presenters per presentation will receive complimentary registration. Please plan accordingly.

The schedule of programs will be finalized by the conference committee at our meeting in late January and notifications will follow shortly thereafter. Please be advised that we can only reserve space for programs with defined content.

To assist in your planning, please note that the tentative schedule for the day is as follows:

8:00am – 8:30am         Registration

8:30am – 9:00am         Exhibits

9:00am – 10:00am       Program Session I

10:00am – 10:30am     Exhibits

10:30am – 11:30am     Program Session II

11:30am – 12:00pm     Exhibits

12:30pm – 2:30pm       Buffet Lunch & Keynote

2:30pm – 3:00pm         Exhibits

3:00pm – 4:00pm         Program Session III

If you have a preference of program time slot (9am, 10:30am, or 3pm), please note it when returning the form and I will do the best to accommodate you. We look forward to working with you to present a great conference experience for all.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
