American Library Association Annual Conference and Exhibition: June 23-29, 2005 Chicago, Illinois


ALA is planning another exciting Annual Conference. Register early for low rates and great speakers, programs and events!

This year's Auditorium Speaker Series will include librarian and author Nancy Pearl, author of Book Lust: Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Reason.

We are also proud to feature the PLA President's Program & Awards Presentation featuring David Sedaris.

PLA President Clara Nalli Bohrer invites you to attend PLA's premiere event at the 2005 ALA Annual Conference featuring David Sedaris. David Sedaris made his comic debut recounting his strange-but-true experiences of his job as a Macy's elf clad in green tights, reading his "SantaLand Diaries" on National Public Radio's Morning Edition. Sedaris' sardonic humor and incisive social critique have since made him one of NPR's most popular and humorous commentators. David Sedaris is the author of the bestsellers Barrel Fever and Holidays on Ice, as well as collections of personal essays, Naked and Me Talk Pretty One Day, which immediately became a national bestseller. There is no charge for attending this event. Mr. Sedaris appears by special arrangement with Steven Barclay Agency, www.barclayagency.com

Many more speakers will be joining us for the Auditorium Speakers Series. Check www.ala.org/annual for updates and more information on the Annual Conference!

Travel Info

AIRLINE AND HOTEL RESERVATIONS

General Information

ITS Group is ALA's travel management company for both hotel and airline reservations. As an ALA attendee or exhibitor, you are eligible for special airline and hotel rates. To reach the ALA travel desk, please call 1-800-974-9833 or 847-282-2529 and identify yourself as an attendee or exhibitor of the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago. The ALA travel desk is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am-5:00 pm CST. You may also make hotel reservations by mailing or faxing the housing reservation form located in this section. In addition, you can make your hotel reservations online through the ALA home page at http://www.ala.org/annual. Choose "Travel & Accommodations" and follow the directions. The housing reservation form features SSL encryption to ensure the privacy of your information.

Hotel reservation deadlines and information

Hotel reservation requests will be accepted until April 29, 2005, subject to availability. A list of selected hotels and their rates is included in this section. Rates are quoted for the room, not per person, and all rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Special rates are available only when you book directly with the ALA travel desk. All rooms are subject to applicable tax, currently at 14.9% for hotel tax. All requests must include six choices. Make sure to give accurate dates of arrival and departure for everyone occupying the requested room. Please note that the ALA travel desk does not assume the responsibility of pairing guests for double occupancy or in multiple housing units. After April 29, 2005, the ALA travel desk will continue to make reservations on a space available basis only (i.e., book early to get the hotel of your choice).

Hotel confirmations, cancellations or changes

Confirmation of the room reservation will be acknowledged by the travel desk and sent within 72 hours. If you have any questions regarding your reservation, or to make changes or cancellations, contact the ALA Travel Desk at 1-800-974-9833 or 847-282-2529, not the hotel. A first night's room and tax deposit (payable by credit card) is required to hold hotel reservations. Your first night's deposit is refundable with at least a 72 hour cancellation notification to the hotel, prior to the day of your arrival. Check your confirmation for details on your hotel's policy.
