LMCC 2018 LogoShowcase your best work at the 2019 Library Marketing and Communications Conference. The Call for Proposals is now open!

The 2019 Library Marketing and Communications Conference (LMCC) Planning Committee invites you to submit presentation proposals for consideration to our 5th Annual LMCC Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. The conference will be held November 13-14, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch.

Successful proposals will showcase the tried and true, the latest trends, and the best practices in marketing and communications. Provide practical tips and takeaways that can be immediately applied to any library’s communication and marketing efforts. We’re looking for speakers who have done this work long enough to have experiences and lessons to share. You should be able to discuss the theory behind your decisions, as well as your actions themselves, and your results. Ideally, your presentation will be applicable and transferable to other types and sizes of libraries.

Have an idea? Please apply! The deadline is May 24, 2019.

  • Communications / PR / Media relations
