WHSLA - Looking ahead to 2021: new board, virtual conference

I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to 2020 coming to a close. While things won't get back to "normal" for many months, 2021 is looking better and better. 

2021 will be an exciting year for WHSLA as well. A new Board, led by 2021 WHSLA President Ashley Zeidler, a new Secretary, and two Members-At-Large will begin their terms. More on the 2021 WHSLA Board coming in January. 

2021 will also see the next WHSLA conference. The planning team, made up of Brenda Fay, Deb Knippel, Kathy Koch, Michele Matucheski, Jennifer Schram, and Ashley Zeidler, have been busy brainstorming and collecting your opinions. Stay tuned for more on the conference, but in the meantime here are some things you can expect:
  • Virtual 2021 conference
  • Free to WHSLA members in good standing
  • Keynote, CE, and networking/sharing sessions
Now is a great time to renew your membership for 2021. At $20 per year, membership in WHSLA is a great deal. Benefits to joining WHSLA?
  • Free registration for 2021 conference
  • Eligibility for Professional Development stipends (two at $500 each)
  • Networking with other Wisconsin health science librarians (priceless!)
  • Selected MLA webinars free of charge
