Call for Proposals: Reaching Forward 2021 Conference (Deadline Fri., Nov. 20)

(via the Illinois Library Association)

So much has changed since the 2020 Reaching Forward Conference was canceled in March. While we won’t be able to meet in-person in 2021, the Reaching Forward Forum strongly believes we need to be together, if that means meeting virtually, to fulfill the mission of Reaching Forward to provide professional opportunities for library staff to grow, learn, and connect with new ideas.

The committee is accepting program proposals for the 2021 Conference. We want to hear how you and your libraries responded to the pandemic. What has worked? How did you adapt to challenges and alter your plans when needed? How did you transition to virtual programming? What new and innovative projects and procedures have you implemented? How are you looking to the future of libraries? Where do we go from here? We’ve all learned a lot this year and we want you to share your challenges and successes.

The deadline for proposal submission is Friday, November 20, at 11:59 PM CDT. To submit a proposal, please go here. If you have any questions about how to submit a program proposal, view the Conference proposal submission information page on the ILA website. The page also includes the various program tracks under which a proposal may fall.
