New 2018 Education Conferences: Call for Event Chairs and Planning Committee Members

The Professional Development Committee (PDC) has determined that the OLC will host three major educational events in 2018. The tentative dates and proposed locations include:
  • Adult Services and Reference event, May 2018, Northwest Ohio
  • Library Management/Supervisor event, June 2018, Central Ohio
  • Children/Teen event, September 2018, Central/Southeast Ohio
The PDC is seeking event chairs and planning committee members who have an interest in these areas of library service. Committee members will be responsible for developing the themes for these events, setting the programming focus, establishing timelines, and making the final decisions regarding educational content. While the exact dates and locations are pending, the PDC has put together a map that outlines the general geographic area for each event.
