Librarians. We spend our working lives trying to make things as uncomplicated as possible but sometimes we’re rather gifted at making things confusing. It seems our explanation of what you had to do to be in the draw for free conference registration wasn’t quite as clear as we thought it was. To that end here’s a further explanation of who is eligible and what you have to do (hardly anything!).
The LIANZA 2009 Conference Committee is very excited to offer one FREE registration to a first time LIANZA member who joins and pays their LIANZA membership fees between 1st June and 31st July 2009. Each first time LIANZA member will be put in a prize draw, collated by LIANZA National Office. The winner will be contacted in first week of August 2009, and once prize has been accepted, the winner’s name will be announced on the Conference website and in other forums.
So we’re really looking for those new to the profession to get a chance to attend a conference so we can keep that fresh blood coming through (aging profession, blah dee blah).
Acknowledge the past
Embrace the present
Advance the future…and all that jazz.
So feel free to shoulder-tap that library assistant/MLIS student or freshly hatched librarian who’s not a LIANZA member…yet. Maybe you could do a quick poll around your workplace to find out who is and who isn’t signed up?
