Good day all,

Would you like to present at the 2021 OLA virtual Annual Conference or were you prepared to present at the 2020 OLA Annual Conference, that was cancelled, and are still interested in doing so in 2021.  The 2021 Program Proposal is now ready for you submit anew or resubmit a program proposal.

 The 2021 OLA Conference, to be held virtually April 21st-24th, 2021. Programs for the conference are educational sessions on topics relevant to the library profession. With your contribution, we hope to build a slate of content that is engaging, informative, diverse, and inspiring! This year’s conference theme is "Equity, Diversity and Inclusion." We highly encourage program submissions that are related to this year's theme in some way, but it is not absolutely required. Submissions are open to anyone, regardless of membership status.

Please complete this form and submit no later than 12:00AM, November 1, 2020.  All submissions will be notified of proposal status by November 16, 2020.

General submission information:

-Please be aware that you must be able to present your program in either a pre-recorded video format or in a live Zoom meeting format (with moderated chat and/or moderated Q&A) during the conference, whether it features a single presenter or panelists. The conference A/V coordinators will work with presenters to provide best practices and technical assistance for creating the best virtual experience possible for attendees. The conference committee is exploring all possible options to assist presenters in creating dynamic and engaging content.

-Be aware that it is unlikely every proposal will be accepted. Strong proposals covering similar topics may be requested to combine into one program to provide varying perspectives on the topic and to ensure that we have room on the schedule for diverse offerings. Program Coordinators will make every effort to suggest alternative opportunities as appropriate (such as panel discussions, lightning talks, poster sessions, etc.) to allow for as much engagement and collaboration as possible at the conference.

-Refer to "Tips for a Great Program Proposal" (on the conference website and here): https://t.ly/eLhJ <http://ola.memberclicks.net/message2/link/019eeaf8-15ef-4812-b77e-882ea3b24572/2> for recommendations on creating a successful proposal.
