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.
