Comments from Attendees about sessions:

This was one of the best workshops (includes offerings from PLA & ALA) on child development and learning I have ever attended! Fabulous.

Great ideas that I plan to implement at my library!”

“Practical and useful tips!”

We are now accepting proposals for CALCON 2020! Whether this is your first, fifteenth, or fiftieth time presenting at a conference, we welcome your contributions and look forward to seeing the new and exciting things you have to share with colleagues from all across the state and surrounding areas. 

NEW THIS YEAR: We’ve added “Information Sharing” as a 5th presentation type! If you have something great to share with others, but don’t think you’ll need a full 60-minute session, then this session type is for you. In addition to the standard (60-minute) sessions, you have the option of presenting for 5-7 minutes (lightning talk) or 18-20 minutes (think TED talks!). 

New idea you’re considering? Great! Recent program that went well? Share it! Activity that completely failed? We can learn from it! 

Submission deadline: Saturday, February 1, 2020

Acceptance notification: Wednesday, April 1, 2020
