2014 OELMA Conference and Speed Dating: What Do They Have in Common?

If you’ve wondered how you as a professional school librarian taking charge of change could use the concept of speed dating in your library program – be prepared to learn at this year’s OELMA Conference.  On Saturday, October 25, 2014, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Quest Conference Center you will have an opportunity to speed date with authors Robin Yocum, Jody Casella, Chris Crutcher, Mindy McGinnis, Colleen Clayton, Jason Tharp and Michele Jakubowski.  Here’s how it works: participants will have 12 minutes with each of the above-mentioned authors and then a 3 minute transition time.  The bell will ring and then participants will move to the next author’s room for their “date.”   It will be exciting – I can already envision the energy building at the Quest Center – can’t you?  Hats off to Angela Wojtecki, Conference Chair, and the entire Conference Committee for their creativity in making this the best conference ever.  Registration for the 2014 Conference is now open.  Take charge of change, take charge of your professional development and join us at the Quest.  Here is the link to the registration form –
