ESS Conference Program Planning Committee


Purpose & Origins

To plan and organize the Section’s Annual Conference program; to review past program topics and select a topic or theme of timely interest to Section members and to a broad spectrum of ALA members; to recruit the best available speakers on the selected topic; to prepare a budget proposal for the program, for the reimbursement of any expenses or for the purpose of offering honoraria to non-librarian speakers; to evaluate the program, based on the responses from those who attend; to provide a summary of the annual program for the fall edition of the ESS newsletter and to College and Research Libraries News.
