Upholding the merits of SLA conferences is a plethora of specialties all under one roof. Participants enjoy endless opportunities to network and listen to engaging keynote speakers. James Carville and Mary Matalin are scheduled to open the 2010 SLA Opening General Session and Awards Presentation on Sunday, 13 June 2010. The gala will conclude on Wednesday, 16 June 2010 during the SLA Closing General Session and Membership Meeting, hosted by Nicholas Carr.
SLA remains committed to the sponsorship of conferences and events throughout the year. For those unable to attend annual conferences, many conferences are posted on-line of handouts and presentations. On the local front, each SLA participant includes membership in one chapter and one division. Chapters offer information professionals a chance to interface with others, where they live and work. A division further defines an opportunity to engage with those sharing unique disciplines of special librarianship.
