A Vision for All Texans: The Texas Library Association Annual Conference is coming to Houston in 2020! Are you available to help the 2020 Local Arrangements Committee March 24 – 27?

We welcome all folks, 18 years or older, to volunteer, whether you are new or returning, professional, paraprofessional, or other library enthusiast. ALL ARE WELCOME!

Volunteers do not need to work in a library or be TLA members. In fact, if you aren’t a professional librarian and volunteer for 4 or more hours, you receive an exhibits pass for that day!

Volunteers should be willing to volunteer for a minimum of 2 consecutive hours. While librarians must be registered for the conference, paraprofessionals and support staff who are not registered for the conference will receive a complimentary exhibits-only pass with four hours of volunteer service.

Before the conference, you will receive additional information about your assignment(s) from the committee chair for the area(s) in which you will be volunteering. Check in at the volunteer booth at the registration area upon arrival.

If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Meshkoff or Treva Shawn Anderson.
