2020 Conference Site Proposals Now Being Accepted

Koha-US would like you to submit a proposal for your site to host the 2020 koha-US annual conference. 

We would like the overall conference to consist of 2 days of structured conference activities and 2 days of less structured un-conference/hack-fest/workshop types of activities – sometime between July 15 and September 30.  Any conference venue must be able to adequately handle a minimum of 80 attendees and must also have adequate WiFi and electrical service for that number.

In order to keep costs as low as possible, preference will be given to free/library spaces – please indicate if you have access to spaces that will be available to use for free/very low cost (and if you are willing to accept the costs for that venue). 4 of our previous 6 conferences have been in the pacific time zone so we are hoping for many proposals from other zones this year.

The deadline for proposals is December 31st, 2019.

Questions and/or comments related to this request for proposals should be directed to info@koha-us.org

Koha-NXT First Meeting

Hello, We are pleased to welcome you, on behalf of McKinney Public Library System and the MPLS Koha team, to attend the 1st Koha-NTX (North Texas User Groups) meeting. 

We are inviting Librarians, Library staff, and anyone interested in Koha ILS and the Koha Community to join us for an opportunity to network, collaborate, exchange ideas and best practices, and share experiences from the Koha-US Conference. 

We cordially invite you to attend a special half day event at the Roy and Helen Hall Library, McKinney, Texas on Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019. The Koha-NTX event will be followed by an opportunity to grab lunch together and a walking tour of historic downtown McKinney. 

We have created a Google Group for Koha-NTX communication moving forward. Please feel free to join and share your Koha experiences with the group. 

We hope you will consider this valuable opportunity to take a closer look at what the Koha Community has to offer and how we can be of value to each other. Please RSVP by October 11th 2019, so that we can make plans for your visit. We look forward to hearing from you.
