Submit Your Proposal

The TLA Annual Conference features hundreds of sessions and events each year. The proposal process is highly competitive, and every year the Conference Program Committee reviews hundreds of submissions.

The majority of conference programs originate from units within the association. However, we also welcome and encourage program proposals from individuals, both TLA members and non-members, and other organizations.

TLA accepts program proposals from May 1 to July 15 to be considered for the next year’s conference.

TLA notifies individuals only if their programs are accepted by a TLA unit or the Conference Program Committee. If you have a question about your program status, please contact the Program Proposals Subcommittee at
