Event description

Description

ALADN is the Academic Library Advancement and Development Network — a professional network of academic library fundraising professionals, university librarians, and deans who practice in North America and work to raise money from individuals, corporations, and foundations to fund library resources, products, programs, and initiatives. Attendees from academic libraries across the U. S. and Canada gather annually to share innovations, best practices, and organizational successes related to fundraising for libraries, including communication and marketing strategies.

The 2019 ALADN Conference will be held at the historic Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky and is hosted by SAALCK (State Assisted Academic Library Council of Kentucky). After you register for the conference, you will receive a confirmation page as well as an email message that will provide you with a link to make your room reservations at The Brown. Rooms are available (if you choose) for Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights for the ALADN Conference price of $189 per night. You should use the link to register. If you call The Brown, please make sure you tell them that you are requesting the ALADN Conference rate. Come back later for additional information on off-site events we are planning for Monday evening.

To find out more, qualified academic library fundraising professionals, university librarians, and deans can also join the ALADN Listserv.
