Submit your program proposals for the MLA 2020 Annual Conference—the deadline is Thursday, May 14!
The MLA Annual Conference equips library staff with new ideas and tools to stay up-to-date, innovate, and succeed in their careers. A presentation at the conference can have an immediate and lasting impact on local libraries. Help shape the MLA 2020 Annual Conference with your voice.
We invite staff from all levels and all types of libraries to join the conversation about how your library is a leader.
- Proposal Submission Deadline: May 14, 2020
- Session Length: 50 minutes (appropriate for 1-3 speakers)
- Format: May include single or multiple speakers, panel discussions, case studies, interactive hands-on activities, demonstrations of projects, etc.
If you are a vendor who would like to submit a session proposal, you will need to be able to provide a local library affiliation in your proposal.
This year, instead of tracks added to each session we are asking each presenter to provide us with 1-3 tags that would help conference attendees understand your session contents.
Please submit one form for each session that you are interested in presenting or coordinating. Proposals will be reviewed by the MLA Conference Program Planning Committee with input from the various MLA divisions and other subunits. Presenters of accepted proposals will be notified by June 1. Should your program be selected, complete program details will be needed by June 18.
