Scholarships are available for those who live or work in Oregon! Information and application process can be found here. Application deadline for scholarships is September 13. Apply today!
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. 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. Attendees will leave the Conference with a concrete plan to advocate for an issue important to them.
Our keynote speakers are Loida Garcia-Febo, President of Information New Wave and current ALA President, and Irene M. H. Herold, librarian of the college at the College of Wooster in Ohio and 2016-17 ACRL President.
