2020 Annual DPLA Network Members Meeting

Please note that the third annual DPLA Members Meeting, originally scheduled for April 30 and May 1, 2020, at the State Library of Ohio in Columbus has been postponed due to the impact of COVID-19.

The well-being of our partners and staff is our first priority, and we want to make sure we are doing our part to protect our community and the public at large. This decision was made in consultation with our partners on the Network Council and members of the Meeting Planning Committee, as well as our hosts at the State Library of Ohio, after a state of emergency was declared in Ohio by Governor Mike Dewine.

DPLA will, of course, continue to monitor the public health situation and will work with our partners to schedule a new Members Meeting date when we can better ensure the health and safety of attendees. We are also exploring alternatives, including webinars, to make sure that essential information is shared in a timely manner. If you have suggestions, please feel free to reach out to shanee@dp.la or any member of the Planning Committee. 

Ticket refunds will be sent to all those registered for the paid “additional attendee” option through Eventbrite as soon as possible. Those of you who have already secured your room at the Hilton Columbus will need to contact the hotel directly to cancel reservations.   

We would like to recognize and thank the Members Meeting Planning Committee for their continued help and support:
