We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2019 ULA Conference, which will be held May 15th through 17th at the Mountain America Expo Center in Sandy, Utah. Our theme for this year’s conference is “In Libraries We Trust.”
Here are a few conference highlights:
- Pre-conferences on topics such as cataloging with RDA and special format items, building relationships and mentoring opportunities with library staff, creating science activities with children’s books, improving presentation skills, developing advocacy relationships, and cultivating leadership strengths.
- Keynotes from Fatima Doman, Founder and CEO of Authentic Strengths Advantage, and Lance Werner, Library Journal’s 2018 Librarian of the Year and 2020 ALA Presidential Candidate.
- Fatima Doman’s keynote: “Thriving in Transition: Finding Strength in Change”
- Lance Werner’s keynote: “Better Libraries and Stronger Communities Through Kindness, Empathy, and Love”
- 6th Annual Silent Auction and Networking Social! Proceeds from the auction fund continuing education scholarships for ULA members. The social will be from 4-5pm on Thursday and will facilitate networking with library colleagues from around the state as well as opportunities to learn more about ULA roundtable and committee groups. Direct scholarship donations are accepted on the ULA website as well as the RegOnline website as you register.
