The PaLA Speakers Bureau

Posted By Leslie W. Christianson, Wednesday, March 12, 2014

What is the PaLA Speakers BureauBlog?

The PaLA Speakers Bureau Blog is a vetted, comprehensive list of speakers from multiple disciplines that libraries can use to connect with individuals in their field and community.

I am a Speaker!  How Do I Register?

Engaging professionals to present on topics relevant to library staff in Pennsylvania are sought. Topics presented should reflect current trends in libraries or subjects of interest, and contribute to the professional development of librarians.

If you are interested in joining the list, see the additional criteria below:
  • It is important that all presentations be informative, engaging, and well-presented
  • Content should be relevant to Pennsylvania libraries. No presentation should conflict with the mission and vision of the Pennsylvania Library Association.
  • Presenters must provide evaluative feedback to the PaLA on presentations made as a result of being listed as a resource with the Speakers Bureau.
  • Presenters are expected to display expertise in their topical area and present effectively. 

To register as a speaker or find a speaker visit the PaLA Speakers Bureau page on the PaLA website.
