Just a reminder that our early bird registration special ends soon (June 20th) for the 18th annual OLA Support Staff Division Gateways Conference : Support Staff – Changing Lives Every Day! The conference will take place in Eugene, Oregon on Friday, July 20th at the Valley River Inn.
We are thrilled to announce that our keynote speaker this year is Brian Doyle, editor of Portland Magazine at the University of Portland and author of Mink River, finalist for the 2012 Oregon Book Award for fiction. Doyle’s books have four times been finalists for the Oregon Book Award, and his essays have appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s, Orion, The American Scholar, and in newspapers and magazines around the world.
Timely and informative sessions at this year’s conference include:
