2023 WLA Conference

WLA2023 Request for Proposals

WLA is now accepting proposals for the 2023 WLA Conference, March 30-April 1, 2023 in Wenatchee, WA. On behalf of the conference committee, we invite you to submit a program proposal!

The 2023 conference theme is All In, Reach Out. Our experiences over the past few years have reinforced the importance of connection. We’ve adapted and learned new ways to connect with each other, to collaborate with community partners, and to meet the changing needs of our patrons and students. Join us at the confluence of the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers this spring, where we will explore our methods of connection and share the resulting innovations. By reaching out and breaking down silos, we can be all in for our communities.

Programs relevant to all kinds of libraries are sought! Program session lengths available include:

  • Preconference workshops: 3, 4, or 7 hours
  • Conference sessions: 45 or 75 minutes
  • "WLA After Dark" sessions: 45 minutes
  • Lightning Talk sessions: 10 minutes

As you ready your proposal, we recommend collecting the following information in advance:

  • Presenter Information (including the name, phone, email, job title, organization, and address of ALL presenters)
  • Program Format
  • Program Title and Description (approximately 100 words in length)
  • Intended Outcomes of Program
