The theme for the 2013 ILA Annual Conference is Ignite!, with fire symbolizing the burning enthusiasm of our profession, the sparking and catching of ideas, and the untamed ambition of all those who seek to offer warm atmospheres, transforming ideas, and hot services to their communities. Illinois library employees are proud to be trailblazers, consistently striving to spark new ideas for serving the burning needs of our communities. Through kindled inspiration, connectivity and collaboration, we actively share our ideas, Ignite! the conversation and, in doing so, light a path for others.
We represent librarians from the state's public, academic, school, and special libraries. The ILA Annual Conference offers you an unparalleled opportunity to reach decision makers from across the state.
The ILA Annual Conference offers opportunities in addition to exhibits - advertising, sponsorship, membership, program participation, and much more.
