Reaching Forward -- A Conference for Library Support Staff

Are you familiar with the Reaching Forward Conference? It's a conference planned especially for library support staff, and it's such a great day that many who are not support staff want to attend also! In fact, Tom Rich, who is a valued member of our LTA Advisory Committee, is one of the primary planners of this wonderful conference. This year, Reaching Forward is on Friday, May 19, 2006 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont Illinois. After breakfast and a keynote address, three sessions of at least ten programs each are offered. This year's keynote speaker is Loretta LaRoche, an international lecturer, stress management consultant, theatre performer, and best-selling author. Her irreverent humor, wit and wisdom helps people learn to take themselves less seriously by seeing the humor in everyday stressors. If you have never attended a conference, this is a great one to start you off. To paraphrase from the Reaching Forward web site, this is a day to learn, network and have fun!
