The Planning Committee for the Library Marketing and Communications Conference thanks all our attendees, sponsors, and partners for another successful event!
In 2016 we continued to expand to accommodate more attendees, needing a second hotel to hold attendees from all over North America (and a few from Europe).
Proposals for LMCC16
We solicited proposals for presentations that showcased the tried and true, the latest trends, and the best practices while providing practical tips and takeaways that can be immediately applied to any library's communication and marketing efforts. We went looking for speakers who have done this work long enough to have experiences and lessons to share. We used a blind process to review all submissions, making decisions both among the speaker subteam and as an entire Planning Committee, to ensure we had the best we could offer. All identifying information was removed from proposals before being sent to the team to review, so selections for LMCC are NOT about 'who you know', we want 'what you know' and to give voice and opportunity to new voices. Once again we received MANY more proposals than we had sessions available, and feel fortunate to be able to choose from among so many great presentations.
It was hard to select the sessions that will make up the conference for our attendees, but we are excited and believe the presentations will showcase the tried and true, the latest trends, and the best practices while providing practical tips and takeaways that can be immediately applied to any library's communication and marketing efforts.
Suggested topics include, but were not limited to, these concepts:

Tracks + Sessions
In 2016 we had multiple tracks (9 total) on both Wednesday and Thursday, with 8 sessions across those tracks in both the morning and afternoon. That's 32 info-packed library marketing and communications learning opportunities! Each day was led off by a keynote which both informed us, gave new ideas, and inspired many to take action when back home.
