PLL Change as Opportunity Summit
As I have previously blogged, the PLL Summit will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2011 in Philadelphia. The theme of the Summit is Change as Opportunity. Plans for the Summit are proceeding quickly and the keynote speaker has been selected. PLL leadership has shared that Jim Jones, Senior Vice President and Co-Managing Director at Hildebrandt Baker Robbins will be our keynote speaker. I had the privilege of working with Jim on the AALL Hot Topic Program in 2009 and am very excited to hear him speak again. Jim will be sharing with us his insights on where the legal profession is headed, and the challenges and opportunities that exist for law librarians and how we can best position ourselves. Hildebrandt provides management consulting services to law firms and corporate law departments. This is a not to be missed program. Stay tuned for further details on the Summit.
There will also be a series of PLL webinars (held in concert with AALL) leading up to the Summit. The first webinar will be held on December 8, 2010 at noon ET. This webinar is entitled "What Law Firm Administrators Want Librarians to Know" and features as speakers the Executive Director and Director of Finance at Sterne Kessler, Goldstein & Fox P.L.L.C., Robert Burger and Thomas Annick, respectively along with Joan Axelroth who is a consultant/owner at Axelroth & Associates. They will discuss the administrative and financial issues that determine a law firm's success. The cost is $45 for members and $60 for non-members.
