Greetings! 

The WLA Programming Committee is now accepting proposals for the 2020 WLA annual conference! The conference will be held in Green Bay from October 28-30 at the KI Convention Center. The Conference already boasts a fantastic lineup of keynote speakers, including Sarah Vowell, Stephen Franck and Nigel Poor. Now we invite you to share your expertise and experiences with your colleagues this October. 

In every library, large and small, there is a story to tell. Come tell your story at the WLA Conference and join trustees, academics, public librarians, special librarians, paraprofessionals and more as we grow together as a profession.  

This year’s theme is Storytelling. Use the tracks and hot topics listed below to help shape your proposal. Your proposal does NOT have to line up with a particular track or hot topic. These are suggestions for what the Wisconsin Library Community wants to learn more about.

  • Leadership/Library Management
  • Wellness
  • Programming/Community Engagement
  • Social Justice/Issues and Advocacy
