Be a SMART Flash Talker!  

by Christi Sommerfeldt, MLIS; Canton, NY

SMART is pleased to offer the opportunity for individuals or group of individuals interested in presenting a Flash Talk at the SMART Membership Meeting at the NYLA Conference which will be held November 5th-8th, 2014 in Saratoga Springs, New York.  Flash Talks, or PechaKucha, are 2-3 minute PowerPoint presentations of about twenty slides.  They can be on a variety of topics including successful experiences with technology at your library to special projects or programming!  There are usually about 5-6 scheduled during the meeting, one being reserved for our Strozik award winner.  For a list of topics from last September’s Flash Talks, visit: http://nylasmart.wordpress.com/2013/08/28/flash-talks-at-nyla-conference/  

To submit a Flash Talk topic, please send an email detailing your topic to current SMART President, Ann Penwarden at apenwarden@monroecc.edu. Please submit your topic by April 1st.
