Program Proposals Due February 25, 2022
The Wisconsin Association of Public Libraries (WAPL) Annual Conference Programming Committee seeks program proposals for the next in-person public library conference to be held May 11-13, 2022 at The Ingleside Hotel in Pewaukee, WI.
Have you ever told yourself, “That just isn’t possible?” With a theme of INFINITE POSSIBILITIES, the goal of this year’s WAPL conference is that attendees will leave empowered to explore possibilities beyond their library and community.
We hope to offer a broad range of content from all areas of the public library world, so we welcome all library and library system staff, as well as students, trustees, and those involved in friends and foundation groups to submit proposals.
Feedback suggests attendees are looking for programs on management, leadership, patron confidentiality, "boomer" awareness, patron apathy, technology, data-driven decision making, brand management and marketing, small library, genre and reader's advisory, and sessions for trustees and support staff. Other suggested topics include change management, grant writing, handling large donations, inclusivity, and dreaming big.
Special Interest Groups are encouraged to submit proposals and meeting/social requests.
Proposals for presentations, panels, workshops, demonstrations, participatory sessions, business meetings, and unit social events are welcome. Sessions will run 60 minutes in length with a maximum of four presenters - 45 minutes for the presentation and 15 minutes of Q&A.
The deadline for submission is February 25, 2022. All submitters will be notified of their acceptance status by March 11, 2022.
Please use this Program Proposal Form to submit your proposals.
