Past Events Fall 2010

Welcome back SLA-ers!

Our first general meeting was September 23rd at 5:30pm in the GSLIS Lounge. There were tasty treats, open SLA officer positions, and a semester's worth of events to discuss. Look for snazzy flyers soon to appear in the Palace Road Building hallways!

SLA Centennial Celebration

SLA Boston is celebrating it's 100th anniversary this year! There was going to be a day full of awesome events, including a reception at Simmons. SLA@Simmons, in coordination with SLA Boston and GSLIS hosted a pre-centennial reception on September 28th at 11am. The SLA President and CEO both attended and spoke with students about their career paths and ours. A great time was had by all!

Members came for the pizza and stayed for the special librarians.

Public Speaking Workshop

On Oct 29th at 4:30pm SLA and ALASC sponsored a public speaking workshop with guest speaker Jessamyn West. It was an opportunity to work on public speaking skills and everyone had a chance to practice.
