Greetings from ALA in New Orleans!
How fortunate we are to be here in New Orleans where we are warmly welcomed to this lovely Crescent City.
I'll try to snatch time to send a few blog entries while here.
1. Time to plan for the JCLC conference
The registration for the Joint Conference of Librarians of Color was extended to mid-July, so there's still time to get ready to attend the JCLC in Dallas, 11-15 October.
Anyone is invited to attend and members of the 5 organizations affiliated with ALA can apply for scholarships. Each of the 5 affiliates (e.g., REFORMA, Black Caucus) has five $1000 scholarships. The program looks terrific and you won't want to miss it! If I've promoted you to register and attend, then send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll bring you a special gift reflecting indigenous culture!
2. Thanks, megwitch, all of you who attended my election party last night in Leslie Burger's suite in the Hilton. The word was it was the best ALA Prez-Prez party in 10 years!
