The Call for Proposals is open!
We all know that the ITEM Fall Conference is a great place to learn and network, but it's also an excellent opportunity to present what you know, whether it's your first or hundredth time. If you have some great information to share, take a moment to submit a proposal. In addition to a friendly and supportive environment for sharing your knowledge, and a chance to add to your professional development plan, the lead presenter also gets a one-year ITEM membership ($60 value) or $50 off registration!
Get away and re-charge with other library and technology folks!
This year we're at the beautiful Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria, right on the shore of Lake Darling. Take a little time during the conference for a walk by the lake, or bring the whole family and let the kids enjoy the water park! Rooms under the ITEM block are $109/night (+ tax) and reservations can be made online here, or contact the resort directly at 866-386-5263 to take advantage of their $139/night special that includes a pass for four to the water park (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday only). Be sure to specify that you're with ITEM.
