Guest Fee

A guest fee is charged for each non-conference participant 18 or older who accompanies a conference delegate to the Alberta Library Conference (ALC).

Please note that the Guest Fee does NOT entitle guests to attend conference sessions or the keynote sessions, as session attendance is restricted to delegates who have paid the full conference registration fee. Guests should leave the dining room before the keynote starts. Breakfast is available in the Moose's Nook after the start of the keynote session. For the duration of the conference (Thursday evening until Saturday night), anyone aged 18 and over must be registered as a Guest to attend events or purchase meal tickets. A Guest registration is not needed to purchase a ticket for Sunday breakfast.

The Guest Fee permits the guest to:

  • be a registered guest of the conference;
  • utilize the ALC block of rooms and meal plan at the special conference rates;
  • purchase tickets to conference meals;
  • attend all included networking events (opening reception, coffee breaks and dance), and purchase tickets to ticketed networking events.
  • attend the Author Talks; and
  • visit the Exhibits.

Student Rate

A student is defined as a member of one of the sponsoring organizations (LAA or ALTA) and enrolled in at least 60% of a full course load in a library or education program.
