Don't Sit on the Fence: Why you should come to the PLL Summit?
Time is running short. So if you are on the fence about attending, jump off and sign up. The day is packed with great programming but I am sure you have seen all the emails publicizing the programming. So, I am going to just mention a few reasons why you should attend:
1. Its Saturday, July 23rd. That's right, it is on a Saturday. You don't have to be at work on Saturday. This is a very good way to spend your Saturday time. You didn't really want to get a sunburn at the beach did you?
2. You get an invitation to the BNA Reception at the Union Club on Friday night. On Saturday you get breakfast, lunch and snacks and while you are eating lunch you get to be entertained by the Three Geeks. You get an invitation to the Westlaw Business (now known as Accelus GRC) reception on Saturday night and I have it on very good authority that this is going to be one heck of a party! Oh, and of course you get to attend a day long series of programs. All for $145. Now that's a deal.
3. This is a great opportunity to network with your peers. We don't really have many opportunities like this. Yes, local chapters do programming but the number of librarians at those programs are usually limited due to space constraints and the librarians are all from the same geographic area. And at AALL proper while there are opportunities to chat we (except for the PLL luncheon) are not usually all in the same place at the same time. And the break-out sessions give you the opportunity to discuss what's happening at your firm or company and hear what is going on at other firms and companies.
There is still time to sign up. Registration is required by June 17th. Don't get left out of participating in this action packed event. Go to http://aall11.sched.org/event/780ffd7742908ef6847af6fc1ed61c0a and click on the link to register. You won't be sorry!
