Tired of the same old, same old?


Let’s give everyone at this year’s CAL conference a little WOW!
As in: Wow, that was fun and different!
Wow, that was so helpful, I can’t wait to try that at my library!


Treat your library colleagues to a little WOW by presenting a program that goes beyond the usual.
This year’s conference—Power On: Avenues for the Future—is your chance to get creative, get bold. Take a risk where the audience is eager and receptive.


But, wow, the deadline to propose a program is quickly approaching; proposals must be received by 11:30 p.m. on SUNDAY, MAY 17.


So start thinking inspiring, surprising and, of course, timely and relevant.

Then visit to submit your proposal for a pre-conference program or workshop.
And don’t forget: you can use the workshop proposal form to have your original research considered for the peer-reviewed session.
