2020 MLA Conference Session Proposal Form
This year your Missouri Library Association conference is focused on the future. We want you to envision what's next for your library, engage your staff and empower your users. We are committed to providing attendees the opportunity to make new connections, experience new ideas, and innovate together for better libraries.
Please use this form to submit your proposal for the 2020 Missouri Library Association Conference, MLA 20/20: Envision, Engage, Empower September 30 - October 2 in Springfield, MO. We are accepting submissions for pre-conference sessions, breakout sessions, poster sessions, and table talks. ALL PROPOSALS ARE DUE BY JUNE 1, 2020.
This is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with your fellow library folks in Missouri! Others may find new and fascinating something that seems commonplace for you. Showcase an event or program your library is doing, illustrate a problem your institution faced and how you solved it, do a genre presentation, talk about your favorite technology for particular library tasks, highlight the awesome leadership training program you attended...the possibilities are endless!
Your conference coordinators will distribute these proposals to MLA Communities of Interest (CIs) as appropriate for sponsorship or co-sponsorship. Based on physical space and available rooms at the conference site, the conference coordinators will recommend the slate of selected programs.
PLEASE NOTE: Presenters are required to register for the conference. Vendors who would like to present at conference must partner with a library/librarian and must register for the conference under the full conference, single day or single session guest presenter pass.
