A high-leverage point to give you and your organization a competitive edge is to be Future Ready, that is, to adopt an attitude of being adaptable, flexible, and confident in utilizing the skills of the information and knowledge professional. Being ready for the future enables us to be more connected, relevant and valuable.

With the information landscape changing dynamically, it is our ability to learn and adjust that is critical. Cindy will discuss with us about becoming Future Ready by adopting strategies that will prepare us for emerging opportunities in the information industry. She’ll discuss examples and bright spots.

Special note to MLIS students: You will have an opportunity to dine at the table with SLA President, Cindy Romaine.  The first 8 students to register will be seated at the President’s Table.
