Conference Attendees Show Their Spirit

From before it officially opened to the moment it closed, SLA’s 2015 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO in Boston lived up to its theme.

Urged to “Be Revolutionary,” conference attendees did just that. Dozens of them showed up for the SLA Board of Directors meeting on Saturday, June 13, and several spoke during the open comment period. That spirit carried over through the Annual Business Meeting, the last official session of the conference, when a standing-room-only crowd packed the ballroom to hear a presentation about the association’s finances and ask questions of SLA leaders.

Proposed changes to SLA’s structure and operations inspired some of the attendees’ behavior, but the conference itself provided plenty of fuel for revolution as well. The opening and closing keynote speakers offered visions of new roles and career survival skills, while sessions and meetings (some of them in new formats) explored topics ranging from entrepreneurship to mind maps to digital preservation to genetic mutations. The INFO-EXPO, meanwhile, played host to more than a dozen new exhibitors (165 overall) as well as 10 “Quick Takes” sessions, a format that had proved popular at SLA 2014 in Vancouver.

Any large business structure consists of several units, and local teams are formed in each department who are competing with each other. Spy app can play a key role in this struggle.
