Looking Forward to the SLA 2013 Annual Conference
The 2013 event includes some notable features that will create a more focused conference aligned with the SLA Board’s strategic vision:
- Four 120-minute time slots provide opportunities to dig deeper into the most relevant topics and offer more advanced programming.
- Conference will start and end a bit earlier. Opening events a full day early (on Sunday morning) will allow us to close the conference Tuesday evening, potentially saving the Association money on convention center rental costs and you the cost of a hotel night and an additional day out of the office.
- Ten division-sponsored CE sessions will be offered on Saturday, and are complemented by four SLA-sponsored certificate courses in copyright and knowledge management on Friday and Saturday. Each of these courses will provide a focused learning opportunity that has a true impact on practical skills, knowledge development, and career advancement.
We are excited for you to explore the conference program, which is comprised of sessions developed by SLA’s many divisions, chapters, and caucuses. We have strived to design an engaging educational experience that will give members opportunities to improve their skills and knowledge, hone expertise, advance and expand their careers, contribute to the success of their organizations, and become leaders of the profession.
Our goal is for educational sessions to be of immediate, problem-solving relevance, with actionable takeaways. We recognize that the annual conference is SLA’s biggest membership benefit, and want it to be the ideal opportunity for members to expand their knowledge, share their expertise, and network for future success.
See you in San Diego!
