The Public Library Association’s first priority in all meetings and events decisions is the safety and welfare of our attendees, exhibitors, partners and team. PLA will implement and follow all current recommendations and requirements related to COVID-19 from the CDC, State of Oregon, Metro, Multnomah County, and the Oregon Convention Center for the PLA 2022 Conference.
