This e-mail is a reminder that the Louisiana Support Staff Association of Libraries (LaSSAL) is having our annual statewide conference at the Holiday Inn in Lafayette on September 23. We have several programs that will be of interest to those who work in academic libraries: LEAN thinking, library fundraising, business etiquette for library staff, using social media to promote the library and the Southern Forest Heritage Museum. We know that budgets are tight, so we have set our fees low ($30.00 for LLA members and $45.00 for nonmembers) so that as many people as possible can be with us.
While we design our programs to have broad appeal, we would like to get the word out that we are here to serve the support staff population working in Louisiana libraries. Therefore, if you know someone in your institution who would be interested, please forward this e-mail. More information about the agenda, lodging, and registration can be found on our website: http://www.llaonline.org/sig/lassal/events.php. The deadline for hotel reservations is August 23 and for registration is September 9, 2011. We will have on-site registration the day of the conference as well.
Hope to see you there!
Elissa S. Plank, Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect
