Conference Program Proposals Form – open through Saturday, October 15


The Oregon Library Association Conference Committee is now seeking Conference Program Proposals!!

We are excited to be planning an in-person conference with a virtual component for the 2023 Oregon Library Association in April 2023.

The in-person will be taking place:

Wednesday, April 19-Saturday, April 22

Riverhouse on the Deschutes in Bend

Our plans include making elements of the conference available virtually and there will be some virtual-only sessions for those who can’t make it to Bend!

Our conference theme is: Rekindle | Rejuvenate | Reimagine

We are looking to both acknowledge the challenges of the last three years and also find fuel to help us move forward as we deliver library services in a changed world.

Please use this form to pitch a program you or a group of colleagues would like to bring to the 2023 conference. We are looking for programs that engage us in acknowledging challenges, bring us comfort, and spark ideas. These can be presentations, panels, facilitated discussions, group activities, and so much more. 

Consider what you would like to learn or discuss at the 2023 OLA annual conference – and then consider – can you be the one to make that happen?

Presentations you can propose using this form include half-day or full-day pre-conferences on Wednesday, April 19 or 75-minute presentations for Thursday, April 20-Saturday, April 22.

Proposals will be accepted through Saturday, October 15. Visit the form to learn more and propose your program today!
