For Convenors

Session convenors are important to the smooth operation of the conference. You provide the personal touch that is vital to the overall Super Conference experience.

Convenors do not receive registration discounts to the conference, but your name is featured in the final program along with that of your organization. It’s a great way to become known in the library community, to promote the library in which you work, and to add to your professional résumé. Please refer to the Convenor Guidelines for a detailed list of duties and deadlines.

If you wish to participate as a convenor please contact your divisional planner.
