The Wisconsin Library Association Annual Conference Programming Committee seeks program proposals for the next conference to be held November 1-4, 2022 at the Grand Geneva Hotel in Lake Geneva.

The theme for this year’s conference is ?Rising to the Challenge” and we would like you to share your stories of how you’ve overcome obstacles, collaborated with your communities and how you’ve not just survived but thrived despite the challenges of the past few years and how you’re preparing for future challenges. We’d also like to continue the important conversations around diversity and inclusivity, staffing, fundraising, advocacy and cultivating connections. We’d like you to consider the big picture but also encourage you to share your practical and effective strategies and inspiring projects from your corner of the library world.

Need some inspiration? Here are a few suggestions:

*   Intellectual freedom

*   Navigating a pandemic and a post-pandemic world

*   Data and analytics?

*   Equity, diversity, and inclusion

*   Managing e-resources

*   Funding and support

*   Digitization

*   Staff training

*   Self-care and healthy boundaries

*   Privacy

*   Accessing government data

*   Collaboration

*   Community outreach

*   Customer service

*   Navigating stakeholder relationships

*   Future casting post-pandemic library services

*   Leadership pathways and career growth

Proposals for presentations, panels, and workshops are welcome. Sessions will run 45 minutes in length (with a limited number of 90 minutes sessions available) and with a maximum of four presenters.
