Welcome to the ALIA National 2014 Conference

On behalf of ALIA and the Steering committee I would like to invite you to the ALIA National 2014 conference. The 2014 National conference will be the major event in the Australian Library and Information calendar in 2014. The conference will take place at The Pullman, Albert Park from Monday 15 September to Friday 19 September 2014 and will include an inspiring and relevant program of workshops, sessions and keynote speakers as well as exciting new social events and an extensive trade exhibition showcasing the latest developments from our corporate partners.

The conference theme will be ‘Together we are stronger’ which will reflect the launch of ALIA’s new National conference as the meeting point for all Library and Information professionals, from all sectors and from all areas of Australia and the international community.

We aim for this conference to provide unparalleled opportunities to become stronger as professionals and as an industry with an engaging program and a forum to collaborate, network and build partnerships amongst our colleagues, peers, industry leaders and corporate partners.

Mark the date in your diary and check the conference website as more information will be added about the venue, accommodation, fun things to do in Melbourne, social events, speakers and registration over the coming months.

We look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne and to the launch of our new conference!

Damian Lodge
ALIA President
