This year’s theme is Making Field Goals: Adapting and Thriving in Library Service. We’re headed south for a field day at the University of Oregon in beautiful Eugene!

Registration includes your choice of sessions, full breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. Based on your feedback from last year, we’re thrilled to welcome back Evan Dumas, this year as our keynote! Start the day off with listening to him speak on “How Not to Burn Out” or “Whoops, too late, now what?” We have a FANTASTIC group of experts ready to speak to you on many diverse subjects. Also based on your feedback, we’re continuing with a mix of traditional presentations and panels, with a chance for audience participation. So if you sign up for a panel, come with your questions and comments!

Looking for ways to save? Register before June 17th for early bird rates. If you’re traveling from more than 150 miles (one way), you may be able to apply for a $50 travel assistance scholarship. Are your colleagues going? If your library/system registers three attendees, the fourth attendee may be eligible for free registration! To assist with the SSD scholarship fund, OLA SSD has some fantastic baskets to raffle at the conference so be sure to bring a little spending money.

Thank you for your interest in OLA Support Staff Division 2017 Annual Conference!
