Registration for the 2013 NELLCO Symposium is now open to NELLCO Members! The Symposium will be held March 14-15, 2013 at the Albany Law School in Albany, NY.
The theme this year is Building a Collaboration-Driven Organization. We have developed the agenda based on the feedback we received last year. We hope we've created a conference that will balance the needs of our members to participate in collegial exchanges with the opportunity to gain new insights and skills.
Each Interest Group (IG) will have a half-day carved out for the work of their group. Content will be developed for the sessions by the Interest Group Leaders. There is no overlap between the IG sessions this year, giving everyone the opportunity to attend several Interest Group sessions if they wish.
In addition to the Interest Group Meetings, we will offer half-day Six Thinking Hats Workshops. Each of the four workshops, which run opposite each of the IG sessions, will be limited to 30 participants. The Six Thinking Hats are an excellent collaboration tool and I urge you to find time during the two day conference to attend. You can select your session when you register.
The third option for attendees in each half-day time slot is an Unconference Session. If you've completed the Six Hats workshop and attended the IG meetings of interest to you, you can join the Unconference group. There you will set the agenda collaboratively, using open space meeting principles.
We hope we'll get the right formula through trial and error, but we won't know if YOU don't come!
