The annual Paraprofessional Conference is a day-long series of presentations and sessions. It occurs this year on Friday, May 12th, 2023 and it will be a hybrid event. The focus of the conference will be "Motivation & Teamwork". The conference gives staff and students the opportunity to network and attend presentations on a variety of topics. Presenters come from a wide array of institutions. The goal of the event is to provide training and information that will allow paraprofessionals to bring constructive change to their home institutions. This is the 19th Paraprofessional Conference that has been hosted by Joyner Library.
Although the main audience of the conference is library paraprofessionals, it is open to any person who registers for the event. Many of the presentations would be of interest to anyone who works in a paraprofessional capacity. Registration costs for the conference are very reasonable and the fees cover parking, breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Parking will be provided in the deck that is adjacent to the library.
