Making a Difference…Together
Welcome to your 2018 NYLA Conference (which I hear is going to be “the best
conference ever!”). Whether you call it the Flour City or the Flower City, the Image
Center or Kodak City, Rachacha or Roc City…or just Rochester, you’ll find a friendly and
vibrant city ready to welcome you for our annual conference. While you are here at the
conference I’d like to ask you to do two things. The first is… Make a Difference.
Make a difference…for NYLA!
Your attendance at the annual conference is an important statement of support
for your statewide library advocacy organization. Strong participation at our annual
conference reinforces NYLA’s well- earned reputation as one of the premier professional
development/continuing education providers for the New York library community. The
annual conference is also a critical revenue stream for NYLA, giving us the resources
needed to continue to speak up and speak out for libraries. And remember too that
our vendor partners represent another major part of the conference revenue stream, so
be sure to spend plenty of time on the trade show floor, talk to the vendors, and learn
about the latest products and services available to the library community.
