Conference Re-envisioning Task Force
The Annual Conference is the primary member activity and the primary source of income for the Association. Over the years it has undergone changes both subtle and substantial with committees in 2001 and 2006, as well as recent activity within the Conference Planning Advisory Committees. The Conference is being influenced by social media, changes in membership and members expectations, as well as professional and economic pressures.
The Conference Re-envisioning Task Force, led by SLA Director Hal Kirkwood, is currently seeking feedback on the future iterations of the association gatherings. Specifically, they are looking at six main areas: member engagement, logistics, content, vendors, international, online. If you would like to provide feedback, an email address is now available for input on the Annual Conference. Now's your chance to make your mark:
Email the Task Force: firstname.lastname@example.org
