Executive Director's Report
by Jeremy Johannesen, NYLA Executive Director
Is The Best Conference Ever Sustainable?
Every year we promote the NYLA Annual Conference as “The Best Conference Ever”. Together with a small army of volunteers, each year we strive to make the conference a bit better than the year before. This year will be no exception, as over one thousand of the best and brightest librarians from across the state come together for three days with the express purpose of developing themselves and the profession.
NYLA 2016: Strong. Strategic. Sustainable.
This year’s conference will feature a keynote address by futurist Garry Golden; appearances by Julia Claiborne, Kerry Egan, Steve Sheinkin and more; the NYLA-Dewy Scholarship Fund Benefit Event will feature live music from returning-favorite Double Axel; a 3.5 mile Fun-Run; Battle Decks; Karaoke; the NYLA Games; Seven different pre-conference Continuing Education Workshops; and over twelve hours of CE credit! The NYLA Annual Conference is the not-to-be-missed library event in New York State for 2016!
