Greetings from ALA Chairperson Tammy Gillmore
I look forward to serving as your chair for the upcoming year. I appreciate the confidence of the Arkansas Literacy Association Board and our membership. Thank you.
Your Arkansas Literacy Association Board is so proud to announce that we are face-to-face for this year’s literacy conference. What a conference this one will be! Fifty years of Spreading the Love of Literacy: this year’s theme as attendees celebrate this momentous occasion!
ALA has such an amazing legacy of encouraging literacy across this great state of ours…from writing competitions, to book clubs, to bringing in top speakers for conferences and webinars, all these have, for 50 years, kept ALA at the forefront of literacy knowledge.
This again happens on July 26-27 as keynotes Colleen Cruz and Kekla Magoon and authors Wade Bradford, Shanda McCloskey, and Brian Lies all join ALA in Benton for an exciting two days of learning, growing, and fellowshipping together. Did I mention this conference is face-to-face? Please consider joining us for this birthday party! Please click here to print four postcards to send to friends or peers. The best of times is spent making memories with those who have a similar interest and goal for Arkansas’ students.
Your ALA Board has an exciting 2022-23 planned. We appreciate your being a member. Need to renew? Want to join? Just click here!
In the meantime, please reach out to any of the officers or board. Our goal, as with every year, is to make this the best one yet!
Enjoy your summer…and here’s to reading a few good books!
