CLENE has a lot of wonderful stuff going on at ALA: Programs, Preconferences, a Discussion Group, and more! We hope to see you at one of our programs and, as always, you’re invited to join us at our Board meetings; to participate, observe or just drop in to say hello.

PRECONFERENCES on Friday July 10

  • SOLD OUT!! AM Preconference: Making it Stick: Designing, Delivering, and Surviving Presentations: A polished and memorable presentation requires skills that depend on your ability to work with, influence, and persuade your audience. This interactive hands-on workshop will help you understand and develop rapport with your audience; develop active content in your presentation; help you learn to be comfortable in front of your audience; and understand when and how to use support materials.Speakers: Lori Reed, Employee Learning Coordinator for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library; Paul Signorelli, writer/trainer/consultant for libraries and nonprofit organizations (Paul Signorelli & Associates).
  • SOLD OUT!! PM Preconference: Punch it up with Pictures: Presentations with visual power: Are your presentations riddled with bullet points? Visual images often speak louder and more succinctly than words. In the tight format of a PowerPoint presentation, strategic use of images can convey more meaning than bullet points and text. The presenter skills you learn in the morning workshop on delivering an unforgettable presentation will shine brighter when your support materials complement rather than compete with you. This workshop will help you to understand how visuals communicate, show you where to find free-use images, and share some best practices for editing and adding images to your presentations. Speakers: Tony Tallent, Director of Libraries & Arts for the City of Boulder, Colorado; Michael Porter, Interactive Strategy Manager for WebJunction; Betha Gutsche, Learning Initiatives Developer for WebJunction.
