Join us on February 17 for Maximizing Local Connections and Resources with “Mini” Conferences, the second in a series of webinars presented in collaboration with REFORMA.
In these times of tight budgets and restricted travel, attending national conferences has become impossible for many library staff. Many local and regional agencies are joining forces to coordinate “mini” conferences that provide the means of connecting and collaborating locally, often providing a more focused and meaningful experience for attendees. Since 2005, the Northeast Chapter of REFORMA has joined forces with ALA ethnic caucuses to present a terrific conference where library workers network, exchange ideas and listen to quality speakers. What started as an idea has grown into an annual event embraced by REFORMA, AILA, APALA, BCALA and CALA. Come hear best practices in planning, coordinating and hosting a “mini” conference from your colleagues who have had success in their regions. Webinar presenters
include Loida Garcia-Febo, REFORMA president, Tess Tobin, REFORMA’s Northeast Chapter and Haipeng Li and Janice Rice, co-chairs of the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color.
