2020 Annual OELMA Conference

Saturday May 16, 2020

OELMA Membership:

Each year, many of us look forward to connecting with each other at the Annual Conference. This event allows us the opportunity to bring together so many awesome librarians in the same place at the same time! Given the current COVID-19 situation and it's continuing effect on communities and schools everywhere, the OELMA Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 2020 Annual Conference at the Dublin Embassy Suites perviously scheduled to take place from September 30, 2020 - October 2, 2020.


This was a very difficult decision to make and one that was taken vary seriously. While conference is an incredibly important event for OELMA, we will always prioritize the health and safety of everyone involved in this event (both staff and attendees). 


The Conference Strategic Committee, who had worked incredibly hard on "20/20 Vision - Focus on the Future," has already quickly changed gears and has begun to plan for a virtual conference to be held in the fall of 2020. We will share additional details about this alternate opportunity in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we thank you all for your patience and please stay safe!
