creative, innovative proposals that address new topics, or that address
current topics in a unique way.

expected to cover their own travel and conference registration costs.

About the conference: The ALA Annual Conference is the largest library
conference in the world-there is something for everyone!  While full
conference attendance ranges from 18,000 to 28,000, between 800 - 1,200
YALSA members attend the ALA Annual Conference each year.  At the event,
YALSA hosts over 100 meetings, programs, events and social gatherings.
Presenters/speakers who participate in YALSA's programs gain national
exposure and can take advantage of the ability to network with the
movers and shakers in the field of young adult librarianship.
Opportunities to extend the reach beyond conference attendees by
blogging, presenting a webinar, writing an article, etc. are available
to presenters/speakers.
