Are you going to SLA in Chicago? Would you like to make the most of the SLA Annual Conference? If you’re feeling a bit new at all this – or would just like to be introduced to other PAM members, have a guide, get an idea of how PAM works and perhaps tips on visiting the exhibits – please let us know.
Meanwhile – if you’ve already got a feel for things and want to help pave the way so someone else doesn’t feel as lost as you may have at your first (few) conferences, again, let us know. Don’t be shy; share a little… and get to know a new PAM colleague.
The Conference Buddy Program is open to all PAM members and friends. It’s an opportunity for newer conference-goers to be paired with (somewhat more) “seasoned” PAM attendees who can help navigate the conference. Depending on your preference, you can share as much time, info and fun as you want, or even just meet for conversation in the PAM Suite.
Sign up for the Conference Buddy Program today! Email your contact info and some idea of what you’d like from your Buddy to me at EL@UNH.EDU today, or by Friday, June 22nd. We’ll match buddies up and email you so that you can make plans to meet at the conference.
By the way, Buddy Program pairs are just for the duration of the conference. If you’d like info about PAM’s formal Mentoring Program, either as a possible mentor or mentee, just mention it in your email and I’ll be delighted to send you an application and/or talk with you in Chicago.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
