Please be aware that ALA schedules conferences in venues that offer the
most value to conference attendees.  If a conference was scheduled there
during its peak season, then registration rates, hotel rooms, etc. would
all cost more.  
As someone who was born and raised in Pennsylvania and who moved to New
Orleans and lived & worked there for 8 years in the 1990s, I concur that
it is indeed hot there in the summer.  However, everywhere you go is air
conditioned, and if you dress accordingly and drink lots of water, the
weather is tolerable.  In my humble opinion, I think the benefits of
visiting an historical city rich in culture as well as the chance to
take part in some first rate professional development opportunities, far
outweigh the fact that the temperature and humidity are high.
