Please mark you calendars and begin planning to attend this year’s annual ALABI meeting, April 22-24 at the Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives (SBHLA) in Nashville, Tennessee. Our theme will be “Here in the Real World: Understanding and Serving Our Users,” so we’ll be promoting practicality with a twang. Details about lodging, meeting rooms, tours, events, and a finalized program will be coming soon.
ALABI members interested in speaking are encouraged to submit session proposals with a country music song incorporated into the title. So, get in touch if you have been helping genealogists rediscover their “Family Tradition” or connecting with new users who have left saying, “You Had Me at Hello.” Your colleagues would love to learn from your experience. Be creative, have fun, and don’t worry if you can’t think of a song title; the planning committee will be happy to help!
Session proposals should be submitted to Jan Ballard, ALABI Vice President/President Elect at firstname.lastname@example.org or 678-547-6680. The deadline for ideas and proposals is February 27th.
Hope to see you all in Nashville!
