Upcoming Spring KLA Conference Apr. 23 - 25

Hello Section Members,

Your Joint Spring Conference Planners have been hard at work planning the spring conference, Unity of Purpose, in Concord with Those We Serve, which promises to be exciting and fun.
Our continuing education begins with the Pre-Conference speaker, Professor Louis Manchise (Northern Kentucky University). His presentation, Preparing, Doing, and Enjoying Negotiating, will focus on the important preparation step for negotiating anything.
We also have an impressive lineup of featured speakers and presenters. George Needham (OCLC) will be our Opening Session speaker on Thursday morning. His presentation, To See Ourselves as Others See Us, will address the findings of three landmark reports on the ways in which librarians and the public perceive, use, and evaluate information.

Our Closing Session, Five Servant/Leaders Who Changed the World, by Dr. Michael Colegrove (University of the Cumberlands), will focus on the characteristics of five servant/leaders who had a major impact on today’s world. We will also have an author presentation at lunch on Thursday by Richard Taylor (Kentucky State University).

The planning committee would especially like to encourage you to attend the Wednesday and Thursday night social events. On Wednesday, come and enjoy good wine, beer, soft drinks, and appetizers while watching your fellow colleagues take each other on at Guitar Hero—or maybe the Wii or Dance Revolution is more your style. Even if you aren’t a gamer, we guarantee you will have fun watching your colleagues!

On Thursday night, we will be hosting an Ice Cream Social with our very own Murder Mystery. You don’t want to miss out on the fun!

Hope to see you there,
