SCALA is proud to announce the brown bag talk for spring semester on April 16, 2011. We have scheduled a panel discussion titled Being Future Ready with ORSLA and SLA. This will be a panel discussion about the benefits and value of joining a professional association. The panel will talk about why it is important to be a member and get involved with ORSLA and SLA as a student. It promises to be a lively event and great exposure to some of the leaders in the Oregon and national library community. The panel will include:
- Cindy Romaine, SLA President, Romainiacs Intelligent Research;
- Amy Maule, ORSLA President-elect, CH2M Hill
- Mecklem, Davis Wright Tremaine
- Phoebe Owens, Wieden + Kennedy.
Former SCALA president Zoe Fisher had this to say about the event:
I just wanted to add that Cindy, Amy, Sue, and Phoebe are all very excited to meet with students! They’re funny, interesting ladies, so I really recommend you spend your lunch time with them – you won’t regret it.
As per usual, it will take place during a class lunch break. While we do not have specific time and place details yet, they will be forthcoming. Hope to see you there!
