The Board of OLAC is now accepting proposals to host the 2014 OLAC Conference. If you are interested, please read the summary of guidelines below and at: http://www.olacinc.org/drupal/?q=node/58#committeeformation.
According to our practice of varying the geographical region of the host city, the 2014 conference should be held somewhere in the Midwest.
Hosting an OLAC conference is:
We look forward to hearing from interested parties, and to receiving proposals no later than January 18, 2013.
- Detail-oriented: perfect for catalogers
- A great way to meet very interesting people
- If you’re going to organize a conference, this is a great one to organize, because OLAC is relatively small and very friendly
- The OLAC board offers LOTS of support (some call it hand-holding)
- You get to spend money that isn’t yours—but you do have to spend it on the conference
- You get to tour hotels and make menu choices
- If you are shy, you get to adopt the more comfortable role of host
- You will be popular—people will gravitate towards you to ask questions—but you do have to solve problems, too
- You will make new friends and meet possible collaborators
- It looks great on your resume!
