First, the reminders.
There is just under a month left to submit your proposal to present at Conference.
Vendor registration is open. If you have a vendor that you love to see each year, let them know you can’t wait to see them in October!
The Magic in Your Library promotion will be going through September. If you haven’t submitted some magic you’re making, please consider it.
And now, the updates.
In the two weeks since my last post, there have been even more meetings. I know. You’re surprised. I can tell.
The PR committee met to catch up on things. And y’all! They are WORKING! We already have our first door prize donation from a local Winston-Salem business. Camino Bakery (Downtown 4th Street location) has donated six coffee mugs and they are NICE! When you’re planning your time outside of the sessions, please consider adding them to your list of business to visit.
The Featured Speaker committee has been BUSY brainstorming and then contacting storytellers to fill our storyteller panel. Emily had some ideas on how to get even more storytellers, so we’re going to meet soon to discuss that. It was a brilliant idea and I’m mad I didn’t come up with it.
***The President Council met and decided we could keep the registration rates the same as years before. We also decided to lower the presenter registration rate to $50 (and that will include some special NCSLMA swag). When we looked over the survey results (if you haven’t filled it out, check it out here), most people said the cost of conference kept them from going. While we can’t lower it, we can keep the cost the same. We hope to be able to still provide a fantastic conference experience and some awesome swag. We want you to be able to sport NCSLMA logoed stuff everywhere you go and show your pride in our organization!
Speaking of swag, we’re currently running a sale of 20% off everything in the NCSLMA store.
I hope everyone has a fantastic week and I look forward to updating you again soon on what all is going on with the conference!
