YWCA of Green Bay: Upcoming Conferences


The YWCA has two conferences coming up:

Both of these will be in-person, with limited attendance and safety measures in place. The YWCA has required masks for staff and visitors since reopening in June and is great about putting safety first. 

Both of these could be worth contact hours for library certification.

Make a difference by joining the WLA Virtual Conferencing Work Group

"With the Coronavirus threatening to remain a challenge well into 2021, the association has created a “Virtual Conferencing Work Group.” The purpose of this work group is to provide a rapid response team to support any live event impacted by COVID-19 in 2021. This work group will operate in concert with our traditional conference committees in situations where a live event is forced to be reimagined as a virtual event due to the pandemic."
