2021 WLA Conference

Now accepting Program Proposals!

We’re now accepting program proposals for #WLA2021, to be held September 30-October 2 in Bellevue! We hope to see you for the full in-person experience, though we will also have select virtual offerings for those who can’t make the trip this time. Submit your proposal by May 5! WLA will prioritize presenters from historically underrepresented communities and programs that support equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Submit your proposal!

The Conference Committee is excited to announce the theme: Communities, Conversations, Connections. As each of us has faced isolation and change, we’ve been pushed us to embrace technology, find new ways to connect, and re-examine the status quo. We’re preparing for a return to normal, but what does that new normal look like for libraries? How can we start conversations and forge stronger bonds with our communities?

The committee is hard at work planning relevant and fun opportunities for you to reconnect with your colleagues, both virtually and in person. Watch for updates on the conference website!

Save the date for the 2021 WLA Conference!

When: September 30- October 2, 2021
Where: Bellevue Marriott

Join us for three days packed full of professional development opportunities, keynotes, and exciting networking events!
