The New Jersey Library Association sponsors a variety of forums, meetings and professional development opportunities, including the annual spring Conference. The purpose of these events is to provide NJ librarians with opportunities to learn, connect and grow, which we believe to have a positive impact on the development and improvement of libraries throughout the state.
NJLA does not tolerate harassment of members, attendees, staff, venue workers, speakers or other participants at any meetings or events sponsored by the organization. Speakers are asked to frame discussion as openly and inclusively as possible and to be aware of how language or images may be perceived by others. Participants may - and do - exercise their option to leave a session or a conversation. As a statewide professional development association for librarians and library workers in New Jersey, the events sponsored by NJLA are an extension of work and no person should work under threat of harassment.
