The Nashville Area Library Alliance (NALA) Support Staff as Leaders Conference was held virtually in October and hosted by Vanderbilt. The 2021 theme was Succeeding Through Perseverance and Endurance. The conference has grown from being a local event to a nationally attended conference. If you were unable to attend and wish to purchase the session recordings, you may do so here.
The conference provides timely, thought-provoking training for all levels of library support staff and the opportunity for members in similar positions to meet one another and share expertise. Although NALA represents the middle Tennessee area, the organization promotes an open and welcoming presence for the whole library community. 2021 conference attendees came from all over the U.S.
