SIRLS Celebration @ ALA Annual Conference 2007 (visit our calendar)
There will be two chances to celebrate the accomplishments of our LSO Chapter this year at ALA. Both will take place on Sunday evening, June 24th, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
First: SIRLS LSO receives the coveted ‘Chapter of the Year Award’ from ALA
What: The ‘New Members Round Table’ (NMRT) Student Reception will host the LSO Chapter of the Year celebration.
Where: Grand Hyatt Hotel, Lafayette Park Room
When: 6:30-7:30 PM, Sunday June 24, 2007
Who: SIRLS students, alumni, and friends and colleagues attending ALA are invited!
This NMRT reception will welcome library school students and guests to network in a relaxed environment and learn more about ALA units from their representatives. The Student Chapter of the Year Award will be presented and light refreshments will be served. Attendees will need to show their ALA conference badges at the door.
Then: SIRLS meet-up to immediately follow the NMRT Reception
What: SIRLS meet-up at the NMRT/3M party. There will be a buffet dinner and drinks either at the party or in the cocktail lounge (last year there were 2 free drink tickets; free drink tickets have not been confirmed for this year though they’re likely)
Where: Grand Hyatt Hotel, Independence A ballroom
When: 7:30-11:30 PM, Sunday June 24, 2007
Who: SIRLS students, alumni, friends, and colleagues attending ALA are invited. We’ll continue to celebrate LSO’s accomplishments and their Chapter of the Year Award immediately following the NMRT student reception at the Grand Hyatt. Attendees will need to show their ALA conference badges at the door, and participation is free with ALA attendance. The SIRLS group will walk from the Lafayette Park room to the Independence A ballroom as a group, or you can meet the SIRLS group there.
