    On Tuesday, Aug 10th 11AM-12Noon  for the NY Community Managers Roundtable, Victoria North (our SLA President now in London!) and I (Eileen) are co-hosting the Managers Roundtable. Irene Pantakis, who is one of the originators of the Managers Roundtable will host one of the breakout discussions. Christine Pelosi who recently launched the Roundtable for mid-Career librarians will share that experience.

    NY Community members are active in DICE. Tom Nielsen will be leading  a discussion about change ("Where Do We Go from Here?) on Thursday at 11AM and also a  DICE/Compassionate Librarianship session is available starting on Sat, Aug 14th - that session will be available after the Conference through a recording.

    Dan Hickey has been leading the way for the B&F Community events and  Nathan Rosen was one of the Conference Planners!- They have both done a terrific job of  planning ahead to make these events happen!
