Please consider submitting a proposal to present an 8-minute lightning talk or a poster for the ACRL-OR/WA Joint Conference on October 25-26, 2018 at Menucha.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Reimagining Advocacy: Personal, Professional, and Political.” Advocacy means so much more than just lobbying the government or our elected representatives (though it is that too!). The Pacific Northwest is full of stories of librarians who have advocated for themselves, their patrons, their libraries, their profession, and their professional values. Our conference will focus on the full spectrum of advocacy work and how each of us can be better advocates when we work to influence decisions at any level.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, August 31st, 2018. Accepted proposals will be notified by Friday, September 14, 2018 and the conference registration deadline is October 1, 2018.
Please contribute to our two days of insightful and thought-provoking conversations at Menucha by submitting a proposal!
