Save the date: UNYSLA spring conference

Speak , Share, Learn:  An UNYSLA Conference & UnConference

Date: Friday 23 April 2010
Location: Anderson Gallery, University of Buffalo

Are you comfortable speaking in front of a group?  Can you make effective and compelling arguments to your audience?  Do you have issues and topics you’d like to discuss with your information professional peers?  Then join us for a day of communication.

We’ll spend the morning developing our presentation skills with Susan McCartney and Bill Grieshober of the New York State Small Business Development Center at Buffalo State College.  Strong speaking skills can help you shine at your next interview, look good to management, and build your confidence.

And in the afternoon?  That’s your call.  We’ll start our UnConference, discussing the topics and issues that are most relevant to your professional life.

Wikipedia defines an unconference as “a facilitated, participant-driven conference centered around a theme or purpose.”  Want to know how more about marketing your library, share how your library is using new technologies, or to discuss budget issues? These are just a few possibilities.   Stay tuned for more information and get ready to suggest the topics we should discuss.

Hope to see you there!
