Empowerment 2006: Taking Charge in a Sea of Change

The ALA Conference Within a Conference for Library Support Staff

This year’s event will offer library support staff a choice of four program tracks, which will address issues in professional development, personal development, skills development, and work/life balance.

Participants will be able to attend workshops on a variety of topics including reference services, children's services, circulation, health & safety, internal customer service, management skills, technology, advocacy, outreach, bookmobiles, program planning and career development. Don't miss this exciting, history-making event!

There will be opportunities to network with colleagues from across the nation as well as hear dynamic speakers. Tour the world’s largest library exhibition and attend the ALA opening general session. Be inspired at the kick-off by a leader in the library community while being motivated to take charge in the sea of change at the closing luncheon.

You’ll come away energized, renewed and refreshed.

The Empowerment Conference will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 24 and 25, 2006 in New Orleans, LA, during the 2006 ALA Annual Conference.
