A New Year Equals New Beginnings
2016 has arrived and we have an exciting year ahead. Just around the corner is the final NALS Professional Development & Education Conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma. You will not want to miss it! Ensure you have made your hotel reservations at the Doubletree Warren Place to get the NALS special rate. The room reservation deadline of February 10 is fast approaching. The NALS rate will only be available until the block is full or February 10, whichever comes first.
We hope you will also make plans to attend and be a part of the Grassroots-Level Think Tank (GLTT). The GLTT will be held at the conference on Thursday, February 25, at 9:00 a.m. The GLTT will meet with the NALS Board of Directors to brainstorm and develop the purpose and direction of the association. Our facilitator will again be Jay Moore. To learn more and sign up for the Grassroots-Level Think Tank, please visit: www.nals.org/GLTT
