Join me at the SLA Centennial Conference

At the SLA 2009 Annual Conference & INFO-EXPO, you will have the opportunity to take your career to new heights through valuable learning and networking exposure. And it’s an amazing Centennial celebration too.
Here are the 10 top reasons you should attend SLA 2009.
1. Learning, learning, and more learning. You will receive 3 days of education (more if you attend pre-conference Continuing Education) and vendor interactions that will help you build skills and a network that you can bring back to the office and share.
.2 You can hold a mini-conference when you return. Bring back concrete examples and hands-on technologies that you can show your colleagues.
3. Washington, D.C. Even if you’ve been to Washington many times, this is proving to be an exciting year in the Nation’s Capital.
4. Networking opportunities abound! Sometimes the most valuable thing you’ll learn will happen while talking to other information professionals.
5. Case studies and real life examples. Many of the sessions feature real life examples that you can learn from immediately.
6. Top-notch exhibit hall. Looking for new vendors or new products? Get invaluable time to talk one-on-one with the leading companies in the industry.
7. Keynote presentation and panel of industry luminaries: Featuring Colin Powell and a panel moderated by Judy Woodruff discussing the current state and future of the information profession.
8. Time and money. If you learn one thing, it could save you lots of money and time down the road. A small investment now will have big pay-off later.
9. Easy Access. Washington, D.C. is easily accessible from almost everywhere with three international airports, Amtrak, and Interstate 95. If you’re in the East, car pool!
10. The Early Bird. *Join SLA today and attend the conference as a member and you’ll save a boat load on money! (US$ 480.00 off the non-member registration fee)
*You must sign up for SLA membership by 31 March 2009 to be eligible for the SLA early bird member discount registration fee.
Bonus: Attend the conference and you’ll have a chance to win a 2009 Smartcar!
And, of course, members get the benefits of membership all year long (including Free CLICK University, SLA Innovation Lab software, SLA 23 Things, 1,000+ eBooks, weekly execuBook summaries, 30,000 free training videos, and much more.)
I’ll be there, like I always am.
