FLA Conference 2016

Conference Alert: The Dress Code Is Casual!

You're Invited to Attend the Florida Library Association's
2016 Annual Conference

"Florida Libraries…Why Not?"

And guess what, we’re going to do some things differently. Our educational sessions will include a wide range of thought provoking topics, rich in content and education value. It’s our goal to send attendees home ready to face the changes and challenges of the constantly evolving world of libraries.

This year's Annual Conference is designed around the statement by Robert Kennedy who said, “There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask Why Not?” It seems more time is spent on churning up excuses for not doing something rather than reasons for doing it. Yes, there will be unmovable obstacles. Yes, there will be moments of flailing at windmills. Why not collaborate with your opposite? Why not take a field trip instead of a meeting? Why not imagine?

So, Why Not join us at the FLA 2016 Annual Conference? You won't want to miss this exciting opportunity for collaboration, networking and professional development.
