“Libraries Spark Imagination”

SSL is looking for quality programming for the 2013 NYLA Annual Conference to support the professional development and growth of our members.  We (SSL) were very successfully represented at the most recent NYLA conference in Saratoga Springs last month with a top notch slate of six regular workshops and one CE program.   I hope to match or surpass the quality of the presentations that we just offered at next year’s conference.  If you or your constituent librarians have an idea for a program that would be suitable for the 2013 NYLA Annual Conference, please submit a completed Program Proposal form (http://www.nyla.org/images/nyla/files/2012-Conference_Program_Proposal_Form.pdf) to me by December 25, 2012.  Please remember the theme of the upcoming conference, “Libraries Spark Imagination,” when proposing your program.

Some things to consider could be: CCLS/APPR/SLO/IFC concerns, trends in librarianship that you think will be important a year from now, best practices, innovative programming, literature/literacy, technology, working with special populations, or anything else you think is relevant.

Thank you very much for your time and support of our profession.

Livia Sabourin, VP for Conferences, NYLA/SSL
