    These look like excellent sessions. I am eagerly looking forward to my first SLA annual conference.

    As someone who has had to develop complicated surveys, and interpret the results of bad ones, that session is particularly intriguing.

    Since I am new to attending SLA, how do we reserve tickets? I thought I'd ask in case anyone else is a new attendee.

    Hi Will,

    Thanks for this excellent question about ticketed events. The SLA conference website currently has this information:

     

    "Registration for the many conference-affiliated special events, continuing education courses, and certificate courses will be available in March. You will receive an email announcing registration for these events." 

     

    So, we can be looking for a communication from headquarters with further details soon.

     

    If it is similar to 2018, a list of LMD ticketed events will be made available online to SLA members registered for the conference. In 2018, registered members could view this list and select desired tickets, both for free and charged events. Their tickets for selected event(s) were then picked up at registration, along with the conference badge.

     

    Once the pending announcement come out from SLA, I'll send an update re the process for obtaining 2019 conference tickets.

     

    Elizabeth
