2022 Organizing Committees

MLA annual conferences are indebted to the volunteers who organize, plan, and select content for each conference. For 2022, three conference committees have combined their efforts for the first MLA hybrid conference, offering both a virtual and in-person full experience for attendees.

2022 National Program Committee

National Program Committee (NPC) members set the course for the largest gathering of medical librarians and health information professionals in the world. The NPC selects the meeting theme, logo, general schedule, and keynote speakers for the McGovern Lecture and issues the call for submissions for papers, lightning talks, and posters. NPC members also liaise with MLA Domain Hubs to ensure content across all professional practice areas.
