Happy Friday! I have just a few reminders to share. First off, VLA Annual Conference stuff:
- We know the latest VA budget cuts are hitting everyone hard right now. We’ve extended the roommate finder form through September 15th if you need to share a room to keep costs down: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1UxLmrzev-Tl6cNxDfW8Lk–p92scVAVc-rNNDShH79A/viewform?usp=send_form
- VLA NMRT is partnering with VLACRL to offer a webinar on Wednesday, 9/24 at 2pm. The fabulous Lauren Pressley, Director of Learning Environments at Virginia Tech, will give an overview of effective presentation styles and tips and tricks for wowing your audience. Perfect for anyone who will be presenting at VLA in October. Register online ASAP to reserve your space.
Also, please consider running for a position on our leadership team. To nominate yourself or a friend, email
