ACRL-OR/WA Joint Fall Conferences

Each October, the Oregon and Washington ACRL chapters meet jointly for a two-day conference and membership meeting, either in Oregon at the Menucha Retreat and Conference Center on the Columbia Gorge or at the Pack Forest Conference Center, on the grounds of the University of Washington’s experimental forest on Mt. Rainier.

For all posts related to the joint fall conferences, click on the following categories:

Recent programs have addressed libraries’ roles in multimedia development, the political and social ramifications of the Internet, total quality management in libraries, developing user-centered services, teaching critical thinking skills, and diversity.

This annual meeting provides an opportunity for members from both states to assemble and discuss mutual concerns and share ideas in a casual rustic setting. The food is great, the scenery is beautiful, but the upper bunks seem higher each year!
