Looking for a speaker

The Advisory Group of Librarians is looking for a speaker to be invited to one of NESA conferences next year (Training Institutes in Bahrain in October, New Delhi at the end of January, or the Spring Educator Conference in Bangkok in March next year).

Please help us organize sessions for librarians we all would be anxious to attend. Make your contribution:
1. Choose one of the conferences you can attend (we will invite the speaker for the conference where and when most of us can come)
2. Specify a topic(s)of your interest in the poll on the right menu of the blog.
3. Give us names of library media specialists who you think would be good speakers, if you have some one in mind.

We don't have much time. Do it now!

Advisory Group of NESA Librarians (AGL)

Hello everyone,

Once again we realize that our NESA librarians' blog is a digital bridge connecting us over different locations!

We would like to see the blog as a communication tool: several email addresses we received at the conference last Fall bounce our messages back. If your email address has been changed please let me know and it will be updated in our NESA librarians mailing list.

We hope that you have become a blog follower to keep up with professional news in the region:

We are happy to share a message we've received today from David Chojnacki, NESA Executive Director, that a group of librarians is formally registered as "advisory group". The members of the group are: Martha Langille - TAISM, Gwen Martin – RVIS, Dawn Walle – Dhahran Hills – ARAMCO, Suzie Rampling – Jubail Academy – SA, Kathy Patterson – ASD – Doha, Peggy Knudson and Marina Brodsky – WBAIS.

The group will be working under the aegis of the Professional Learning Advisory Committee (chaired by Gail Seay of AS-Doha), providing the group with input regarding
the professional development needs of library/media professionals in the NESA region.

Next step is to choose someone to be designated as the official contact person.

Any suggestions?

Keep in touch.
