Identifying Topics, Speakers, and Programs
Chapter Program Ideas
This PDF document contains a list of successful chapter educational programs which may help chapter leaders identify potential programs of interest.
Chapter Education Database
The Chapter Education Database is a searchable database housing information from educational events presented by ALA chapters. The database may be used by chapter leaders to search for prospective speakers in five core topic areas.
ALA keeps a comprehensive index of the top-rated speakers from ALA's Annual and Regional Conferences, retreats, webinars and more. The speakers in these listings have all spoken at ALA events during the past four years and have received above-average scores as evaluated by ALA members attending those presentations.
Members looking to engage a speaker are advised to conduct their own due diligence.
