BC Library Conference Code of Conduct

In 2019 the BCLA Board of Directors introduced a Conference Code of Conduct (CCoC) for the annual BC Library Conference. The Code of Conduct was updated in December 2020 to reflect the Association’s move to mount a virtual conference in 2021 and to include significant virtual sessions in subsequent years. The CCoC can be found here.

A CCoC Committee will be struck for the annual conference. The committee includes the Association President, Incoming President, Treasurer, Incoming Treasurer, and Executive Director. The 2021 Committee is:

Christine Middlemass, President
Todd Mundle, Incoming President
Adam Farrell, Treasurer
Anne O’Shea, Incoming Treasurer
Annette DeFaveri, Executive Director

When the annual conference is in-person BCLA sets up an office at the conference venue. At the request of any conference attendee or participant staff at the office will contact CCoC committee members. The President and Executive Director can be reached directly through hotel reception when the conference office has closed.

For a fully virtual conference any attendee or participant can contact the Executive Director at or have any staff member contact a CCoC member for them. Staff include manager@bcla, and

Thank you to the many BCLA Board members who contributed to the Code of Conduct and to the many organizations whose Codes of Conduct provided a foundation for BCLA’s Code.
