The following call for proposals comes from Cynthia Arauz (La Crosse Public Library):
"Planning for the 2021 WLA Support Staff and Circulation Services (SSCS) Virtual One-Day Professional Development Conference is in full swing!
The conference will be held Thursday, May 27, 2021. This one-day conference will be held virtually, and the theme will be “Supporting and Serving Through Challenges” and will assist attendees with thriving in challenged times while still successfully serving their communities.
The conference planning committee is now accepting proposals and recommendations for presentations, panels, and workshops. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: diverse hiring practices, adaptivity to constant change, how to approach state, federal, and city mandates, living in a virtual world, how to advocate for those without a voice, virtual fatigue, and staying relevant with limited services. What is it that makes you and your library stand out? Successful presentations should be approximately 45 minutes, include 10-15 minutes of question and answer, showcase effective and innovative practices, and be applicable to many types of libraries. Help yourself and your fellow library staff by sharing your expertise and presenting at the SSCS Conference.
We understand that it can be difficult to construct a conference presentation from beginning to end. Therefore, we are offering something new this year ready-made presentation topics. A couple of examples of these topics are:
