2022 FLA Conference Recap

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2022 FLA Annual Conference held in Ponte Vedra. The conference planning committee put in a lot of work to make sure that conference attendees, both in person and those joining us online, were able to view a variety of content. As the chair of the conference planning committee, I am proud of the work that this group accomplished. We know there are certainly areas for improvement for next year's conference and we largely know about these areas because of everyone's excellent work with filling out surveys. Thank you for your feedback, engagement, and suggestions for the conference planning committee. I am eager to see what the committee accomplishes under the exceptional leadership of Debbie Reilly from Citrus Libraries.

We could not, of course, do this without the sponsors and exhibitors that attend our conferences every year. I hope you all took some time to visit their booths, learn more about their products, and were able to develop some meaningful relationships with these library champions.

I also want to thank the talented and creative presenters that were willing to give their time to share their work with colleagues across the state. Without presenters, conferences do not happen. Please consider submitting your own proposal for a session at the next FLA conference in Dayton Beach.

Finally, the FLA staff deserves a huge shout out for their commitment to making this conference work. They were quick to respond to questions or concerns that came up during the conference and provided excellent leadership during a hybrid conference that was even larger than I think we anticipated. As we reflect upon the presentations and posters from this past conference, I hope we can look at how we have reset and reconnected our communities and our library teams. I deeply appreciate everyone's hard work that went into making this conference happen. I cannot wait to see you all in Daytona in 2023 as we move into the next frontier!
