2nd Annual NewFeds Virtual Conference Redux

Join us for the 2nd Annual NewFeds Virtual Conference Redux!

Who: The NewFeds Professional Development Sub-Committee is
coordinating the Redux with participation from several NewFeds and
Special Guest, Mr. Sebastian Wilke from IFLA’s New Professionals
Special Interest Group (NPSIG).

When: Sunday, August 26 at 11:00AM (Eastern)

Where: Online via AdobeConnect:
https://collaboration.fda.gov/r54772385/  AND with conference call
dial in: 1-626-677-3000, participant code: 8124885

NOTE: We intend to record the Redux, so if you are not able to join us
“live” you will be able to listen to the recording at your leisure.

Why:  Learn from your peers about key takeaways and highlights from
the conferences they have attended this summer. Join the discussion
and Q&A after the presentations to share your own experiences.
Alternately, we invite you to write a conference-related guest post on
our site (https://newfedsinfo.wordpress.com/). It would be a great way
to “re-purpose” a trip report you wrote for work.

Please contact Caralyn Champa (newfedsinfo@gmail.com) with any
questions about the Redux.

2012: 2nd Annual NewFeds Virtual Conference Redux

On behalf of Ms. Caralyn Champa, Co-Chair, NewFeds Professional Development Sub-Committee:

The 2nd Annual NewFeds Virtual Conference Redux will take place on Sunday, August 26 at 11:00AM (Eastern) via AdobeConnect. The event will be recorded, so if you are not able to join us “live” you will be able to listen to the recording at your leisure.

This year, we will hear from NewFeds who attended ALA, SLA, a Copyright Conference, and possibly others. In addition, Mr. Sebastian Wilke from the New Professionals Special Interest Group (NPSIG), a part of IFLA will tell us about the NPSIG camp he and his colleagues organized in advance of the 2012 IFLA Conference in Finland.

At this point, we have room for 2 more presenters (10 minute slots). Alternately, we invite you to write a conference-related guest post on our site (https://newfedsinfo.wordpress.com/). It would be a great way to “re-purpose” a trip report you wrote for work.

Please contact Caralyn Champa (newfedsinfo@gmail.com, ATTN: Conference Redux) if you are interested in sharing highlights from your summer conference experiences.
