(Apologizes in advance that I won't be there for this meeting. My report is below:)

The 2021 LACUNY Institute will be taking place May 5th and 6th over Zoom (both are expected to be half-days). Registration is $5 to benefit the LACUNY Mutual Aid Fund. The keynote speaker is Dr. Lorgia García Peña and the conference theme is "Ending the Library Stereotype: Non-traditional practices for the 21st-century."

The schedule of sessions has not yet been released but should be shortly.
