2020 MLA Annual Conference – Virtual Symposium: Together APART


Together Apart: MLA 2020 Symposium
Sept. 28, 30, & Oct. 2 2020

Instead of the in-person 2020 conference, the Missouri Library Association will offer a streamlined, virtual experience focused on connection, ideas, and inspiration as we navigate a new normal. As an association, we must be cognizant of the challenges (and possible opportunities) library workers will face as we adjust services and spaces to deal with the COVID pandemic and begin to plan for our futures beyond COVID-19. To meet the need for flexibility while also providing the engaging professional development that our members demand, the MO Library Association is pleased to announce a virtual symposium:

Together Apart: MLA 2020 Symposium

This event will:

  • Provide focused, thematic content for all types of libraries and library employees
  • Provide a distributed format for flexibility
  • Feature invited speakers and professional event production
  • A registration fee of $25 for MLA Members
  • Roundtable and networking activities
  • Opportunities for sponsorship

While we will all miss our traditional conference, we hope to provide an engaging, meaningful experience for our membership. We plan to resume our regular conference format in 2021 in St. Louis.

I personally hope you can all join us in the fall!

Be safe, stay well,
Cynthia Dudenhoffer
2020 MO Library Association President
