The 2021 KLAS Users’ Conference to be held in Nashville, TN June 29-July 1 will be here quicker than you think!
Make this an extraordinary learning experience by sharing your expertise and creativity with colleagues from other libraries that use KLAS.
The KLAS Programming Committee is accepting proposals for general and breakout sessions for the conference. We want to include information about new service initiatives, innovative ways to use KLAS, or how you train staff and volunteers to use KLAS most effectively. Proposals are welcome from those willing to present in-person, virtually, or both as we prepare for the possibilities of an in-person, online, or hybrid conference.
If submitting a group presentation, please list the session organizer / main contact.
2021 KLAS Users' Conference Session Proposal Deadline = Friday, December 18, 2020
Here are some photos from the site visit we made to Nashville to begin planning for the 2021 KLAS Users' Conference. You can view all the pictures taken during our trip in this Google Photo Album. Pictures include the Tennessee School for the blind campus and student cottages as well as potential reception locations.
This is the school's large meeting room.
A statement regarding the 2021 KLAS Users' Conference & COVID-19:
With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure you the Logistics Committee is taking the utmost precautions in preparation for the 2021 KLAS Users' Conference.
While you have seen information for an in-person conference, the Committee has not ruled out the need to go virtual depending on the pandemic and possible travel restrictions and concerns many of the users may have. Moving forward, the Logistics Committee will continue to monitor the situation and will make a final determination on an in-person, hybrid, or virtual conference by May 1, 2021.
Jennifer Buzolich, President, KLAS Users' Group & Chandra Thornton, Chair, Logistics Committee
