Please note we’ll automatically schedule the usual Saturday, June 23, morning all chairs meeting, followed by the all committees and interest groups meeting in the same large open room:
8:30 - 10:00 am LITA Joint Chairs Meeting
10:30 - 11:30 am LITA All Committees and Interest Groups Meeting

Interest Groups should tell me if you want a specific listing inclusion in the Saturday 10:30 - 11:30 am listings.
Committees if you do NOT want to be included in the Saturday morning slot listings, please indicate so below.

Committees and Interest Groups wanting additional meetings MUST fill out this form. Example uses would be:
- Interest Group managed discussions and meetings

When requesting meeting space and AV equipment please remember that there are specific costs to LITA, so please request what you need, but try to refrain from making requests based on "just in case". Thank you and see you in New Orleans.
