I’m planning to attend ALA Annual in person as well, and it would be wonderful if we could get together!
All the best,

It would be great to see as many of you as can attend. I know the Library is planning some events for attendees. If you plan on coming, please let me know.
This is Tim Gleisner from Michigan. I am going to be at the conference. I would be up for a meet-up.
In support of Suzanne's call for in-person gatherings, I wonder if anyone from our network intends to be at ALA in DC this June? At present, I'm planning to attend and will opt out only if some wretched variant rears an ugly head.
If there were a contingent of us, we might organize a meet-up?

June 2019 was the last time we gathered in person for an ALA Conference, and it seems like a lifetime ago. When we attended that conference in Washington, D.C., no one could have imagined the challenges that a global pandemic would bring to our lives and to our libraries.
We’re excited to be returning to Washington, D.C., for our first in-person conference in three years, where some things will admittedly be different. There will be social distancing, vaccination, and mask requirements — all of which are necessary to keep us safe. There will also be joyful reunions, celebrations of the work we’ve accomplished during the pandemic, and lots of great opportunities to learn from each other.
Have a look at the education sessions in the Preliminary Scheduler. Here are a few that I'm especially looking forward to:
I can’t wait until we are together again. I look forward to seeing you all.
If you’re thinking about registering, and I hope you are, now’s the time to do it. Prices will jump on March 31.

Register before March 31 for the best savings!
