ALA Midwinter 2009 has been over for just over a month now and as I’ve found with other conferences and travel, I get so far behind while I’m away, it gets hard to catch back up.
This was my second ALA event and first time at Midwinter. While ALA Annual is about the programs, ALA Midwinter is about the business of ALA. Although I attended several great programs about technology in libraries, the majority of my time was spent in board meetings. I’ve become more involved in the CLENE (Continuing Library Education Network Exchange) Round Table. I’m currently working on a PR and marketing plan for CLENE that fill fulfill a project requirement for school. I’ve learned from good friend and associate Paul Signorelli that it’s a great time saver when you can use one project for two purposes.
Some of the highlights from Midwinter:
My coach from my Master Trainer program also lives in Denver so I was able to meet her for dinner and brainstorm a bit on my program – which is due in a few days.
