Celebrating Leadership at ACRL 2015 Portland!

By the time you read this post, the ACRL 2015 Conference will be just a few weeks away! Hopefully you are planning on attending and looking forward to a few fun days in Portland — our own “backyard.” One reason that I am really excited about this conference is because of the ACRL 2015 Leaders’ Reception the evening of March 27th. What are we celebrating, you ask? We’re celebrating ACRL leaders and the years of work they’ve undertaken to bring ACRL 2015 to fruition! A conference of this size is no small feat, and we just wanted to say Thank You to ACRL leader members for bringing the conference to PDX.

I have been coordinating the planning of this event for many months. In keeping with the “Go Local” movement, I am most proud of the fact that we worked to develop local-only funding. The reception is entirely supported by Oregon and Washington academic library donations and by individual donations from ACRL-OR and ACRL-WA members. Each of our donor libraries and individuals is listed on our ACRL 2015 Leaders’ Reception Donors page. This event, literally, would not be possible without their support. Thank you!

If you are current ACRL-OR or ACRL-WA member, here is one of the perks of your membership:  you should have received an email invite to this event! Go ahead… check your inbox… I’ll wait. The RSVP for the ACRL 2015 Leaders’ Reception is due by Saturday, March 7th, so don’t delay.

Will I see you at ACRL 2015? I sure hope so.
