2020 Call for Poster Session Proposals

 

The FLA Continuing Education Committee invites proposals for posters for exhibition during the FLA Annual Conference in Orlando, FL. To learn more about the conference, please go to the conference page found here.

We encourage Poster Proposals to be related to the program theme "Leading Forward” chosen by our 2019-2020  FLA President Eric Head.  For more information on the conference theme, please view Eric’s President’s Message.

Posters offer a unique avenue to share innovative services and ideas.  Posters illustrate some of the many ways that Florida libraries are taking chances, trying new opportunities, and having fun.

We will accept poster proposals from Wednesday, November 6 through Friday, December 13, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. Each presenter will have access to a poster display board and a table on which handouts and other materials can be placed. Access to electrical outlets might be sparce so please plan accordingly.
