What Member Steve Silver is Saying About ACRL Oregon!

Steve Silver (Northwest Christian University) – The ACRL OR/WA annual joint conference is at the top of my list of “must do” conferences every year. Both the Menucha setting in Oregon and the Pack Forest setting in Washington are unique among conferences I have attended. Both settings, and the programming of the conferences themselves, lead to real opportunities to really engage with my colleagues across the two states. Similar “networking” happens at other conferences, but not in the way that ACRL OR/WA does. Relaxed, informal, relational. As with other conferences I come away informed and inspired, but unlike many other conferences I come away refreshed, re-energized, and not overwhelmed with ‘just too much.’ And better connected to my fellow academic librarians in the region. I am very grateful to the Oregon and Washington ACRL chapters for providing the ACRL OR/WA conference as a fantastic benefit for my membership.
