Adult Services Symposium 2020 - Call for Presenters
The call for presenters for the 4th Annual Adult Services Symposium is now open! The Adult Services Symposium is designed to inspire, show, and share how libraries are successfully bringing adult and intergenerational groups in their communities together to read, learn, discuss, and connect. Learn more about the goals of this event and California Center for the Book before applying. This grant-funded professional development event is part of California Library Association's Spring Fling programming. Library staff and community partners will be invited to attend. Attendee registration will open in February.

SUBMISSIONS ARE DUE JANUARY 17, 2020 at 5:00pm, with notifications in early February. Presentation submissions should fit clearly with the theme of Gather. Estimate 10-15 minutes per presentation with time for Q&A at the end of the session and during an informal breakout session the last hour of the day. Slides are optional. A required Presenter Planning Session will be held via Zoom on February 12, 2020 from 10:00am - 11:00am, so please tentatively save the date. Slides (if using) will be due one week before the Symposium. An optional, non-grant funded meet-up and book chat (on The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why it Matters by Priya Parker) will be held on Wednesday, March 25, the evening before the Symposium. Travel costs are covered via reimbursement for presenters.
