Professional Development/Conference Planning

Thérèse Mainville-Celso, therese.mainville<at>gmail<dot>com

Thérèse’s SLA journey began when she volunteered as VP of the SLA Student Group during her first year in the Masters of Information Studies program at McGill University. Due to the enriching experience gained from participating in SLA events, she wanted to give back to the community, and has since held different roles within SLA. She served as a Professional Development Chair for the KM community, the 2019 Conference Planner for LMD, and a student representative on SNPAC.

During her final school year, she attended KMWorld 2017 to seek additional opportunities for growth, and a chance meeting led to a KM internship in San Francisco at Genentech, a subsidiary of Roche, where she worked on lessons learned, taxonomy development, and expertise location projects. This internship led to a Knowledge Operations Manager role at Roche in Mississauga, where she continues building on the work she had started as an intern. This year, using the experience gained from planning SLA programming, she will be planning virtual programs for a KM campaign aimed at raising awareness of KM across the organization.

Today, Thérèse is still part of the SLA community as the 2021 Conference Planner for the KM Community and the Toronto Programming Director for SLA Canada.

Business Partners/Sponsorship Director

Pam Nila

Pam joined the US Army directly after graduating from high school and became a military intelligence analyst and cryptographer. After completing her initial tour of enlistment, Pam continued to serve in the Army National Guard and Reserves until 1991. In 2001, after the attack on the US, Pam re-enlisted in the Army Reserves at the age of 4, training troops and units in a variety of critical tasks before they deployed to the war zones.
Due in part to being exposed to high tech systems while in the military, Pam was an early (1994) internet marketing executive and entrepreneur. After working for a small start-up, she started an online publishing company in 1997. Forced to rethink an online start-up business after the DotBomb Bubble of the late 1990,'s, she joined a large publishing company and was on the team that commercialized and put several large research datasets online.
Pam became passionate about KM while working for a large STEM publisher. After over ten years of working with librarians and researchers, Pam returned to university to obtain a MSLIS. She most recently worked for ExLibris as a Technical Support analyst for the Alma LIS. She is currently working as a contractor on a variety of projects.
