Biennial Conference

At the Biennial Conference of the Association, a business meeting is held. Personal members in attendance at a regularly scheduled meeting shall constitute a quorum at any business meeting. Additional business meetings may be called by the President with the approval of the Executive Board.

A State Officers meeting, to be attended by the Presidents, Vice-Presidents/Presidents-Elect, and Executive Secretaries/Directors of the state associations will be held during each Biennial Conference.

The biennial conference rotates sites, and held in conjunction with SELA and a state library association. The joint conference merges the resources between the library associations. The joint venture is beneficial to both SELA and its association partner, where the joint conference provides each association the opportunity to attract local, regional, and national library and public leaders to address the members of both associations.
