2018 SLA Conference – Baltimore, MD, Jun 11-13, 2018

The following is shared because the location of the 2018 SLA Conference was moved to Baltimore, Maryland from Charlotte, North Carolina.  This was done in response to anti-LGBT legislation in North Carolina.

Future Conference Locations

Each year, the SLA Annual Conference is held in a different U.S. or Canadian city. Locations are selected three to five years in advance. The selected venue is typically a large convention center with sufficient meeting rooms to accommodate the many simultaneous programs, meetings, and events that occur during the conference. The conference hotels provide additional space for conference activities. All rooms are climate controlled, and smoking is typically prohibited in the indoor spaces.

Upcoming Conference Locations:

SLA 2017 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO
Phoenix, Arizona, USA
June 18–20, 2017

SLA 2018 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO
Baltimore, Maryland, USA
June 11–13, 2018

Fellow SLA Members,

As you may recall, on June 7, 2016, the SLA Board of Directors announced a decision to relocate our 2018 conference from North Carolina, in commitment to providing a location where the professional participation of all members is not only possible, but welcomed and local legislation does not violate policies inherent to our organization.
This decision to relocate was not made lightly—rather the board and staff fully reviewed its options and reflected upon implications of these options for members and the association itself.
It is with great appreciation for the support and understanding of members regarding this earlier decision that I am happy to announce that Baltimore, Maryland has been chosen and secured for the SLA 2018 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO:
SLA 2018 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO
Monday, June 11–Wednesday, June 13, 2018
Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, MD
Main Conference Hotel: Hilton Baltimore (connected to the Convention Center)
As we make arrangements to move forward with the 2018 annual conference in Baltimore, we continue to work with Charlotte on mitigating the fees associated with our cancellation and will share the results of those negotiations once all details have been finalized.
Thank you again for your continued support and understanding of the board’s decision to relocate the 2018 conference to Baltimore. We are confident that it will be a conference to be remembered.
But in the meantime, we look forward to seeing you June 18–20 at the Phoenix Convention Center and Sheraton Grand Phoenix Hotel for SLA 2017 in Phoenix, Arizona!
Tom Rink
2016 SLA President
