The 2024 NEFLIN Hot Topics Conference is coming on Friday, Aprilt 26th, at the University of Florida Hilton Conference Center!

This year’s theme is “Other Duties as Required”.

NEFLIN invites you to submit a proposal to present a breakout session at the conference.

Remember reading the job description when you originally applied for your job? Was there some line like “Other duties as required” among the different tasks and responsibilities?

Fast forward to now. Does it seem like most of your job falls into that category?

We would love to hear how you have overcome challenging circumstances and forged your own trail to success! We are especially interested in presentations about the unexpected responsibilities that you have embraced and transformed into successful library services and programs.

This is the forum for sharing your story! Come to Gainesville and join your colleagues in celebration of blazing new trails.

The deadline for submitting a proposal is 5:00 PM on December 15, 2023.  If your proposal is chosen you will be notified by January 31, 2024.  We will send acceptance and regret notifications via email.
