In 2017, BCLA and the Conference Planning Committee took a new approach to thanking conference speakers for their participation in the BC Library Conference. Instead of giving speakers a box of chocolates or perhaps a bottle of wine we acknowledged their contribution to the conference with a donation to a community non-profit that shares BCLA’s values. We thank all speakers for their participation in the conference and let them know that a donation has been made in grateful recognition of their contribution.
