Networking Events

Conferences are about more than sessions and trade shows – they’re your chance to mix, mingle and meet your colleagues from all over Alberta, and find out how they’re shaking it up at their libraries. Watch for some great events appearing soon.

Thursday April 27

7:45 p.m.-8:45 p.m.    First Timers’ Get Together

Kick off your first Alberta Library Conference with a bang! This is the place to meet other first-timers – trustees, library staff members, exhibitors.  Make new connections, learn how to make the most of your conference, enjoy a beverage, and enter to win terrific door prizes.

Notes

If you are not staying at the Lodge you can buy all meal tickets, including those for the closing dinner, at the JPL Concierge Desk right up until dinner time. Extras are also sometimes available – check at the Registration Desk periodically. Tables are first come, first served (no reserved tables), but look for the New Friends table (marked with balloons) if you’re not with a group. Alcoholic beverages are available to order from the wait staff at the banquet, or to purchase at the bar in the dining room, but are not included in your meal ticket.
