We are thrilled to be planning our 4th annual Member Summit and this year's in-person event will be at the Big 10 Conference Center in Chicago. Our theme this year is Local to Global. We are excited that will be our first meeting after the LYRASIS + DuraSpace merger, and we will be welcoming DuraSpace Members and staff.
The summit will include high level discussions for your senior and executive staff as well as the Leaders Circle pre-conference.

The LYRASIS Member Summit is a members-only meeting for senior strategists and staff who are looking for new ways to collaborate and serve their users, researchers and communities. It is designed to help our members and their institutions seize both sustainable and disruptive innovations to deliver new, better, and tried and tested approaches for increasing and sustaining access to knowledge. The Member Summit creates a unique space for learning, networking, collaboration and designing action on the most important issues facing archives, libraries, museums and galleries today.
As a LYRASIS member, you are invited to this annual conference at no charge.
If your organization is not already a LYRASIS Member organization and you'd like to hear more about or vision for impacting your communities and the benefits we offer our members, please contact Membership.
