The 36th Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado will kick-off on Friday evening, May 2nd, with the ARLIS/NA Convocation followed by a special welcome party where we will be surrounded by Colorado’s mountain peaks.At the ARLIS/NA Convocation we will celebrate and award members who deserve recognition for their work at the height of their career, mid-career, and those who are making notable beginnings. We will recognize winning publishers and authors, and for the first time present the newly established award in honor of Merrill Smith.

Following the convocation, members are invited to the 38th floor of the Grand Hyatt Denver, a room of windows! Enjoy the sunset over the Rockies, live music, and culinary delights with your colleagues and friends; an uplifting way to welcome everyone to Denver and commence the ARLIS/NA 36th Annual Conference.

The Membership Meeting on the morning of Monday, May 5th, will give everyone the opportunity to enjoy an all-inclusive light buffet gathering before we hit the last day of programs. At the meeting, of course, we will attend to some business and hear from the Indianapolis Conference Planning Committee, say goodbye to a few Board members and welcome new Board members. A special addition to our meeting will be Loriene Roy, current President of the American Library Association. A wonderful person and speaker, Loriene, will enlighten us with her association stories.
See you in Denver for these events and more!
