The ALA Board of Governors and ALA staff have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 ALA Conference due to the health concerns associated with COVID-19.
This decision is based on the health risks and travel precautions outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and continuing changes that affect each state as well as Canada. We sincerely regret any inconvenience resulting from this decision; however, your health and safety is our number-one concern.
Our decision is entirely focused on ensuring the safety of our members. Thank you to everyone who contacted us and/or participated in the survey with pertinent information to assist the Board of Governors in making this important decision. The member support we have received is a testament to the strength of both the industry and our organization, and we look forward to working together to develop a great 2021 Conference.
