The Conference Committee will oversee the planning for MiALA's annual conference, which will be held in the spring. These details can include (but are not limited to): program planning, publicity/marketing, keynote speaker selection, local arrangements (meals, dinearounds, hotels, signage, technology), vendor relations, sponsorship coordination, etc. The committee will have at least 6-8 members. The main planning committee may appoint subcommittees to assist with local events, marketing, proposal review, etc. An association officer or Board member will also serve on this committee, providing a link to the board.
