I just broke the news to my 4-year-old son that I am leaving town in the morning. His reasoning and bargaining skills are amazing, but the fact remains that yes I am heading out to ALA bright and early tomorrow morning. I still can’t get over the fact that I am going to miss my daughter’s first birthday on Friday, but she was actually due on July 4th so we’ll have a great party when I get back.
If you are heading out to Anaheim stop by and say hello. Here’s a list of events that I will be participating in:
- Friday 8:30am – 12:30pm CLENE PreConference “Competencies for Your Staff: From Implementation to Integration” Anaheim Convention Center 212A
- Saturday 1:30 – 3:30pm WebJunction Library 2.0 Cafe Sheraton Park Hotel Palm Ballroom
- Saturday 4 – 5:30pm ACRL Learning Virtually Poster Session “LOL: Live Online Learning @ PLCMC” Hilton Anaheim Pacific Ballroom C
- Sunday 1:30 – 3:30pm CLENE Training Showcase “PLCMC’s Information Technology Core Competencies” Hilton Anaheim California Pavilion B
Hope to see you there.
I also have to add that this is my first time at ALA (first time at any library conference). At first I was overwhelmed but I have to say that ALA has been amazing in providing me with useful information through email, contact from conference ambassadors, and I even have an assigned ALA mentor.
