NJLA 2019 Conference
May 29 @ 12:00 pm - May 31 @ 3:00 pm
Combining professional development mixed with social interactions, formal and informal networking, food, overnight accommodations, geography and travel considerations, logistics and scheduling and space! And not to mention, just like with wedding and other party planning, always keeping in mind the infinite and wide range of needs, preferences and expectations of all of your guests, speakers and organizers. Add to the pressure that the annual conference is one of only two primary ways that NJLA makes any money with which to operate (the other is individual and institutional membership dues). It certainly takes a team effort to put together a large-scale three-day, statewide event, and we’re pretty lucky to have some of the best team players around.
All of that being said, every year there are a lot of questions about why we do what we do to organize and plan for our annual conference. In light of thinking and moving beyond the box, we want to make sure the process as transparent as possible and answer some of those questions from our membership.
