Here are the highlights that should be of interest:
· The annual paraprofessional forum will be held on May 22-24 at the Koger Center in Richmond. For additional information http://www.vla.org/wordpress/?p=3387 (The Virginia State Law Library sent one of our staff to a one day workshop sponsored by this forum in Fall 2010 and she was quite enthused; we are sending both paraprofessionals in May. Consider sending someone from your library.)
· ALA’s Library Legislative Day is May 9-10 in Washington, D.C.
· Conference Planning has begun for VLA’s annual meeting Oct 27-28 at the Portsmouth Renaissance Hotel. As you know, VALL is partnering with VLA. Put on your thinking caps and put in a proposal for a program; the deadline is May 1. http://www.vla.org/wordpress/?p=1851
