CFP: Southern Alberta Library Conference (SALC) 2019

August 13, 2018

The Southern Alberta Library Conference (SALC) 2019 Planning Committee is inviting proposals for concurrent sessions for its conference in Lethbridge, AB, February 28th – March 2nd, 2019.

Leading by Example

A true leader models compassion, creates vision, builds community, and inspires trust. Join us at the 2019 Southern Alberta Library Conference to unleash your leadership potential and learn how your library can contribute to a thriving, healthy community.

The Committee invites session proposals that highlight ways in which libraries are modelling leadership and creating welcoming communities. The Committee will give preference to sessions that can be categorized into one of the following streams:

  • Governance & Management
  • Library Services & Programming
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Professional & Community Leadership

We encourage all proposals to consider how the subject matter can be applied to rural libraries.

Concurrent sessions are 75 minutes in length.

Lightning Strike Sessions
Lightning strike sessions will feature 3 separate presenters within the regular 75 minute timeslots. Each presenter will be given 15 minutes to present, with time at the end of the presentations for questions from the floor.
