The WI Association of Public Librarians annual conference is coming up April 26-28 in Stevens Point.

YSS always has some great programs there and that's where YOU come in. Our members create the best content and here is your chance to propose a youth-centric session that let's you share your expertise as a sole speaker or put together a panel of peers to present!

If you want YSS to sponsor your program (you need a WLA unit to sponsor you), simply send your proposal title, description and speakers to the YSS board by Friday January 27. You can email it to YSS chair Terry Ehle, and the board will get back with a yes or no before the deadline listed below so you have time to submit your proposal.

Need more details? Last month conference chair Virginia Roberts sent out the following:
The WAPL Conference Planning Committee invites program proposals for the Spring Conference, to be held April 26-28, 2017, at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Convention Center, Stevens Point, Wisconsin. 

Proposals for presentations, panels, workshops and business meetings are welcome.  Sessions will run either 45 or 60 minutes in length.  Every WLA unit has a special perspective to offer and we encourage you to be part of our 2017 WAPL Conference.  If you, as a WLA member, have a great program idea, don't wait to be asked to present it, submit a proposal yourself!  The more ideas and diversity of topics, the more rewarding this learning opportunities will be for all. 

Please use the Program Proposal Form to submit a program. 

Deadline for proposal submissions is: February 3, 2017.  You will be notified of the program's acceptance or rejection no later than February 24, 2017

The YSS board can hardly wait to hear from you!
