Dear Utah Library Association Member,

Click here to submit a program or here to see the information needed to submit a program. The 2018 conference will be held at the Utah Valley Convention Center in Provo, Utah from May 16th-18th. This year’s theme is Level Up.

Please consider sharing your expertise with your colleagues from around the state by submitting a conference program proposal. We are looking for programs of a variety of lengths (Pre-Conference – 3 hours, Speaker/Panel Session – 50 minutes, Speaker/Panel Session – 20 minutes or Lightning Talk – 10 minutes) and on any topic applicable to libraries. Last year’s attendees expressed particular interest in more programs on the following topics:

  • Adult or Senior Citizen Programming
  • Author Sessions
  • Collection Development
  • Digitization
  • Fundraising
  • Intellectual Freedom
  • Leadership
  • LGBTQ & Diversity
  • Marketing
  • Staff Training & Development

Extra consideration will be given to programs covering the topics listed above, however all submissions will be considered.

I am looking forward to seeing another great crop of submissions from a great group of people.
