Hi Everyone,

It looks like the OLA proposals are due before our next OYAN meeting. ☹ Should we start an email thread to discuss proposals? I know at our last meeting, we talked about maybe doing a panel on teen space funding/design.

Subject: 2018 OLA Conference Call for Proposals

Good morning,

The Oregon Library Association is pleased to announce the submission site for OLA Conference Programs for the 2018 OLA Annual Conference, which will take place in Eugene, OR, April 18-21, 2018, is NOW OPEN!

The Conference Committee invites OLA members and non-members alike to submit their program ideas for consideration. Once again, we will offer half-day and full-day pre-conferences on Wednesday, regular concurrent sessions on Thursday and Friday, and a full day of programming – with an emphasis on topics that especially appeal to members of OLA’s Oregon Association of School Libraries division – on Saturday.

OLA President Buzzy Nielsen selected this year’s conference theme: “Many Points of Light, One Bright Future,” which is the slogan for the Libraries of Eastern Oregon<http://ola.memberclicks.net/message2/link/0debd7b2-42bd-40ad-a99a-9101d3478cef/1>. OLA was granted permission to borrow their tagline – and adapt their logo – to highlight OLA’s on-going commitment to outreach, support, and collaboration with rural and small libraries. Read more about Buzzy’s theme choice here:  https://orlib18.wordpress.com/about/<http://ola.memberclicks.net/message2/link/0debd7b2-42bd-40ad-a99a-9101d3478cef/2>

Keep in mind the proposal process is competitive and it’s unlikely that every proposal will be accepted. Applicants are encouraged to think creatively about how their program connects to this year’s conference theme!

The deadline for submissions is 9:00PM, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017. All submissions will be notified of acceptance or rejection by November 17, 2017.
