This year CLTA and its affiliates are sponsoring at least 6 Jamborees!

We have dates for six of these events.  We will send out more information as it comes available.  If you haven’t been to a Jamboree, it is usually a mini-conference that includes a variety of sessions and presenters with a small continental breakfast & lunch (all-day events only). All Jamborees include FREE membership in CLTA and one affiliate of your choice for the 2019-20 academic year.
We are still looking for presenters for the San Diego Jamboree, December 7.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email Paula Hirsch at or call 424-289-1036.
