Offline has traditionally been a mid-winter conference held in February. Those of us frequent attendees can attest that winter weather can often present challenges either coming or going.
This year, it was decided to combine Offline with the ASLD/PLD retreat held at Chico Hot Springs in the fall. The following is from Mitch Grady:
Hear ye, hear ye,
Our planning team is looking for your proposed sessions for this year's joint Fall-Offline Retreat, Sunday October 3rd and Monday October 4th at Chico Hot Springs Resort in Montana's world-famous Paradise Valley.
Sessions may be on any1 topic. We would especially like to see your presentations on library technology, and subjects pertaining to academic and special library work.
This will be the first (!) in-person MLA event since the pandemic and related fiascos turned our lives upside-down and/or inside-out. Let's get back together! Carefully and safely. And funly!
A program proposal form is attached. Please return it to any of Syndie Tallman (sydnie.potillo at mt.gov), Brittany Dolezal-Herwig (bdolezal at bozeman.net), Abbi Dooley (abbid at polson.lib.mt.us), or Mitch Grady (mgrady at mtlib.org) by September 4th and we'll see you at the Retreat!
1Library-related, preferably. Or not? Tell us what you got.
