During her term as ALA president she launched The Promise of Libraries Transforming Communities, a partnership with The Harwood Institute for Public Innovation, to prepare librarians to be conveners of community engagement and public innovators in their communities. She also worked with the Harvard Graduate School of Education to establish the first Library Leadership in a Digital Age institute. ALA created its first national leadership institute, Leading to the Future. She currently serves as an advisor to the Aspen Institute on Rising to the Challenge: Re-Envisioning Public Libraries.

 

Silent Auction and Networking

Back by popular demand! In conjunction with our Thursday evening social we will be holding a Silent Auction to raise funds for conference scholarships to be awarded to first time conference attendees in the coming years. This year the funds will be earmarked for rural and small library workers to be able to attend major conferences close to Utah. (PLA 2016 in Denver & others)

There will be auction items from local businesses and library folks – just like you! If you have extra signed books you’d like to donate, special memorabilia or any sort of gift item—we welcome your donation to this worthy cause.

Please bring your auction item(s) ready to go (ribbons, cellophane, etc.) to the registration tables no later than Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 12:00 PM. Thanks so much for your participation!

Keynote

ULA 2015 Features Two Keynote Speakers

This year we're trying something a little different! Instead of featuring lunch speakers, we'll feature two keynotes. Both speakers will present on Thursday. Former ALA President Maureen Sullivan will kick off the conference, and folklorist Lynne McNeill will close out the day and provide us with food for thought leading into the Social.
