Conference program finalized!

The program for the 39th IAMSLIC Annual Conference and 23rd SAIL Annual Meeting is now finalized and available on the conference web site! Thanks to our presenters, moderators, planning committees and sponsors, we have a wonderful variety of presentations and activities planned for you.

A few items of note:

The Green Flash session scheduled for the afternoon of Wed. Oct. 23 will include brief presentations on new technologies, services, resources, initiatives and more! Planned talks include demonstrating new collaborative tools, setting up a repository, library renovations, collaborative projects, and digitization projects. It’s not too late to be included! Do you have a program to brag about that was particularly successful? What about a new resource that others might find useful? Did you find a particularly funny cartoon we can all enjoy? Contact Kristen LaBonte at if you would like to share news, reviews and other flashes of insight with colleagues.

Don’t forget to bring something for the Guin Auction! The Guin Fund was established to support participation in IAMSLIC by subsidizing memberships and attendance at meetings. A silent auction is held at the annual conference to raise money for the fund. Members bring smallish items to donate to the auction. Jewelry, liquor, handmade items, posters, books, unique items from different countries and t-shirts all sell well. Each person is assigned a secret name to bid on items. Bids are in the local currency (U.S. dollars this year) and ROUND amounts only (NO quarters, dimes, nickels, or pennies). Don’t forget that the space you have in your luggage bringing items can be used to take items home.

It’s not too late to sign up for the fun and exciting pre and post conference field trips – spaces are still available! On Sunday, October 20, we visit Flamingo Gardens in the morning, and on October 25, we spend a full day at the Billie Swamp Safari. Sign up today and join your colleagues on these fun eco-adventures to see even more of South Florida during your stay! To register, login to your registration account and add your selections.

Safe travels to all. Looking forward to seeing you in sunny Florida!

On behalf of the conference planning committees,

Sally Taylor, Conference Convenor
Jaime Goldman & Keri Baker, Local Hosts
Maria Kalentsits, IAMSLIC President
Joyce Shaw, SAIL Representative
